Bob Wielaard (1964) is a Dutch photographer. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague and attended workshops at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam.
For a long time he worked in architectural design. In recent years the emphasis has been on photography.
Travels through the Scottish Highlands have deeply changed his view and approach to the land and his photography. The vast expanse of nature resulted in a more intuitive approach.
The question of what a landscape actually is, is determined by aspects such as ‘materiality’, human presence / absence, memory, history and event.
His photography is mainly monochromatic.
