We think Dutch photographer, Farfarm (Michel Verhoef) has an invisibility cloak. Such is his ability to capture human beings doing what they do without even the vaguest sense that they are posing for the camera. This portfolio, an amalgamation of captured moments in human life, is endearing, warm and deeply moving.
Verhoef’s photos are technically masterful; he uses light and contrast beautifully, and the composition is marvellous. No square centimetre is wasted in any shot. If anything, he crowds the frame with his subjects (adding further weight to the invisibility cloak theory), their poses telling us stories that we already know, yet are somehow fascinating when placed in the butterfly case of a photograph.
At times, these moments are left to the viewer to apply his or her own interpretation – just look at the variety of comments following the gorgeous shot, After all these years. Take a stroll through this endearing collection.

This is the third in a series of artist features on the RedBubble blog. As the readership for the blog grows further beyond the virtual walls of RedBubble, we’re always looking for opportunities to promote artists and encourage more eyeballs to take a wander through the RedBubble hallways. We aim to write posts that show off the best the RedBubble community has to offer, that engage and entertain artists – both on RedBubble and beyond – and appeal to art and design lovers far and wide. If you’re scratching your head, wondering if there’s some method to the madness or if this is an elaborate experiment involving monkeys and typewriters, you’ll find a little more information over here.
