Willem’s work is a bold and vibrant take on the traditional sensibilities of fashion, documentary and portrait photography. A former assistant to Corinne Day, Willem has gained an impressive client list including Mackintosh, Nike, i-D and Vogue US. While the London native often focuses on dress and colour, he finds himself equally “drawn to things that have a human touch, the way that people express themselves.” In his recent book In Bohemia he turned his attention to the everyday beauty of a small village in the Czech Republic. The project was supported by the European Regional Development Fund and exhibited at Photofusion Gallery in Brixton.
Willem’s relaxed combination of fashion and documentary photography brings a warm and authentic feel to his imagery. He applies these same principles in his role as Contributing Photo Editor for Also Journal.
