This collection mainly consists of portraits, but also includes some landscapes.
Career of Paul Blanca
Paul Blanca, who was born as Paul Vlaswinkel is a Dutch photographer best known for his controversial self-portraits. For example, he has shot a self-portrait in which an arrow sticks through his cheek, Mickey Mouse has been carved in his back with a knife or deformed himself and others with a wire. He also does not shy away from the ugly. Drug addicts and deformed bodies feature in many of his photos. An important person in the life of Paul Blanca has been Robert Mapplethorpe. He has taken Paul under his wing and introduced him to the New York art scene. He also said about Paul Blanca: “Paul Blanca is my only competitor.” This shows no modesty from Mapplethorpe, but it clearly shows that Paul Blanca was seen as his equal.
Works for sale
I have quite a few works by the Paul Blanca for sale. This includes the photo series "deformation" in which he deforms bodies with a wire. Blanca makes us look at human beauty in a completely different way here. But if this is not your taste, Paul Blanca has also taken beautiful landscape photos of the Netherlands in the series "Rondje Nederland". You will often see water in this, which is of course not surprising when you think of the Netherlands. But there are also typical Dutch views, in which the Dutch landscape is beautifully portrayed.
If I've made you enthusiastic about these photos, I'd be happy to help you pick one. You can do this online on my website or in my art shop in Haarlem. I look forward to delighting you with a beautiful photo, whether it is a portrait or a landscape.
