BASED IN AMSTERDAM
Driven by imagination, curiosity and intuition, Philippe creates images that often seem to render a classic quality being dynamic, honest and playful. He always seeks certain qualities in a person’s look, on which he can base his portraits. With the minimum of means he manages to capture a powerful and pure image of whoever is in front of his lens, which makes his photographs both convincing and timeless.
Philippe’s list of clients includes international fashion brands such as Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as labels like Davidoff. Philippe is also a much wanted contributor to some of the biggest magazines in the world (VOGUE, GQ, V Magazine, Porter, to name but a few) alongside capturing global tastemakers like Yoko Ono, Mj Rodriguez, Alek Wek and Christiano Ronaldo.
Philippe’s work has been exhibited at Foam Museum on numerous occasions. In 2014 Philippe was part of ‘Don’t Stop Now, Fashion Photography Next’, an exhibition and book (Thames & Hudson), curated by Magdalene Keaney. He was chosen to exhibit next to and during Helmut Newton’s retrospective show, for which he created a special series of works entitled ‘4 Big Male Nudes’. Most recently he released the book IXXX with Mendo.
