Gustavo Ten Hoever

was born in Uruguay and he attended photography school in Montevideo before moving to New York City.

He now divides his time between Paris and New York. During an an eye opening trip to the Brazilian Amazon, he began shooting for his first photo exhibition, “Full Moon People,” covering the indigenous people of this region. Since then, Ten Hoever has travelled extensively and exhibited internationally with shows in New York, Connecticut, London, Paris, Geneve, Zurich and Gstaad.
 
Ten Hover's photography is a spiritual quest to capture the essence of a place, a person, a moment and his images are distinguished by an unaffected interaction of nature and space, beings and objects. Through his lens we are offered a view of nature that composes the beautiful and the strange, the simple and the sublime. He works through a broad range of photographic style and genre and his pictures are greatly influenced by literature and poetry. It is the calm and dreamy nature of his images that affect viewers most.


Gustavo Ten Hoever

est né en Uruguay.
Diplômé en photographie à Montevideo, il part ensuite s’installer à New York, où il vit et travaille, parallèlement à Paris.

Durant un voyage en Amazonie, Ten Hoever en immortalise les indigènes pour sa première exposition “Full Moon People”. Depuis, le photographe n’a de cesse de voyager et exposer ses oeuvres à New York, au Connecticut, à Londres, Paris, Zurich, Genève et Gstaad.

La photographie de Ten Hoever est une quête spirituelle, à la recherche de l’essence d’un lieu, d’une personne, d’un instant.
A travers ses yeux, une certaine perception de la nature est offerte, composant le beau et l’étrange, le simple et le sublime.
Le style et le genre de l’artiste sont aussi intéressants que variés, influencés par la littérature et la poésie. C’est le caractère calme et rêveur de ses images qui touche le spectateur.
