Arjan de Nooy

Using my own as well as found images, I devise stories and theories. These may have a fictional character in which my own role can vary from art historian to feminist, from collector to ornithologist. An ongoing project is a new history of Dutch photography (see denooycollection.com), and I am involved in the periodical Salvo.
