Ton Dirven



The image a part of a small series that makes you aware of the process of going downhill, even from the moment you were born.


Ton Dirven creates graphic images, balancing between reality and fantasy, approaching the emotive essence of his subject with classic sense of composition. He is also known for his black and white nudes. The essence of those is the pure composition and suggestive use of light. Especially art collectors are interested in his work, because of the nature of his images. Ton Dirven lives in Breda, a small town in the south of The Netherlands. He is next to a self-taught man, with exhibitions in international photo festivals in The Netherlands and Belgium.
