Lot Essay

This work is number 7 from the sold-out edition of 10.

A largely self-taught photographer, Botman documents the people and places of his own life. The nuanced subtlety of Homecoming is a gestural reflection of family connectedness and the intangible wonder of childhood.

Botman, an active photographer, curator and teacher, has shown his work internationally and his photographs are held in private, corporate and institutional collections, including Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris; FNAC, France; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. His work is widely published and was highlighted in the anthology Dutch Eyes. He lives and works in Amsterdam.
