Johan Van der Keuken published his first photographs, in 1955 in a book entitled, We Are 17 and he rapidly turned his interest to cinema and music, always uniting his various passions. With his snapshots of everyday life, colorful or dark, blurry or graphic, the Dutch photographer considered photography as ‘his greatest love because it’s more private’. His images diffuse a clear sense of anxiety and enigma, no surprise his favorite film was Alfred Hitchock’s Vertigo. Johan Van der Keuken thus mastered his obsession: ‘If I cannot create images anymore, I’m dead.’
