Bas van der Poel
He is a Dutch photographer with a passion for the beauty of decay. He explores the normally unseen or off-limit parts of urban areas or industrial facilities to make pictures of the beauty of natural decay, before they are trashed, demolished or renovated.
These buildings can be hospitals, castles, manors, industrial buildings or private houses. Mostly the buildings are not freely accessible and visiting them is often dangerous.
Music and pop iconography has always influenced Keith’s work and has been the inspiration behind his unique pieces using found materials such as original vinyl records, album covers and badges.
His portraits and other pieces are a literal interpretation of Pop Art and have been exhibited alongside iconic artists such as Lichtenstein, Warhol and Peter Blake.
