Gustavo Ten Hoever

Gustavo Ten Hoever was born in Uruguay and attended photography school in Montevideo, Uruguay before moving to New York in 1986. He currently resides in Paris. After an early and formative expedition to the Brazilian Amazon, he began shooting his first photo exhibit, Full Moon People, chronicling the indigenous people of this region. Since then, Ten Hoever has travelled continuously and exhibited internationally with shows in New York, Connecticut, London, Paris, Geneva, Zurich and Gstaad. His editorial work can be seen in publications around the world including L’Insené, I-D Magazine, French Vogue, Wall Street Journal, US Vogue, Arena, and The New Yorker. His clients include Hermès, Rei Kawakubo, Dosa, Editions Gallimard, Persol, Orange, Martin Margiela and Chaumet. Over the past 15 years, Gustavo has shifted his attention to a more personal photographic journey, capturing the natural beauty and poetry of places and people. A spiritual quest to capture the essence of place or person informs Ten Hoever’s photography which is distinguished by this unaffected interaction of nature and space, beings and objects.
