LIFE IN GENERAL
BY PAUL VAN VUGT
Paul van Vugt (Netherlands, 1978) is graduated from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam at the end of 2013. With his mainly non commissioned and analog work he focuses on the normal and everyday behaviour of man and on his environment. In his images this life seems a bit mysterious and alienating.
These images are a part of my ongoing series Life in General. This series shows my need for rest and minimalism in our crowded, complex and restless world. In our system that’s driven by perfection and by ‘big-bigger-biggest’. I feel the need to simplify this world and to focus on apparently meaningless things.
In the meantime I ask myself the question what really makes sense. In my opinion the answer is nothing as well as everything.
