ARTIST STATEMENT

Juan Stockenstroom‘s interest is informed by the experimentation of photography, sculpture and post-production, and how in particular these practices intersect and conflict.  He conceives photography as a process where both chance and decision contribute to the final presentation of his work. Between the release of the shutter and final printed image, a relentless exploration and experimentation takes place.  The basic photograph doesn’t render as just an image but rather as the result of cause and effect. His process itself is never the same and adapts to the object or subject that is being studied. He is curious about the way in which visual content impacts society. His work is concerned with the everyday mundane meeting subtle twists which is often forced in the post production processes to create a "visual hyperbole".


Juan Stockenstroom was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1982. After working for several years as a Photographic Retoucher & Creative Director, he decided to shift his focus and pursue an artistic practice.   His work has been featured in both print and web publications like Der Greif, Paper Journal and The Latent Image. He has exhibited in both Europe and South Africa.
