Ossip van Duivenbode (1981) studied History of Architecture and then worked at AIR, the architecture center of Rotterdam. Since 2010 he has been working as an independent architectural photographer. His clients include architects, publishing houses and cultural institutions. His photographs appear in books, magazines and international journals.
Ossip is one of the initiators of OMI, a public center for architecture.
“Architecture and urban planning are completely involved in my existence. When I walk through a city I am constantly observing. What is the influence of a building on the environment, what are interesting details, how do they relate to people?”
With his photography he is looking for the large-scale architecture that is broken by small human use; to the urban places that are intimate again by the small-scale, sometimes temporary, interventions.
