Last September, the prestigious Leica Oskar Barnack Awards 2019 took place in Berlin and we featured two of the finalists in Client US13 for their outstanding b/w photography essays. Here is the work of Tomas Van Houtryve, with descriptions of each photograph below each image.
Tomas van Houtryve was born in Belgium and works as a photographer, conceptual artist and author, winning various international awards. In American history, before 1848, Mexico ruled the American West yet this has not been well documented by photographic essays from that time. Tomas van Houtryve used his series titled Lines and Lineage to try to address that in his own way.
