Renée Kemps’s Light-Filled Photographs Pull Us Into Her Ethereal World
London-based photographer Renée Kemps creates compelling, minimalist visuals that highlight her unique finesse for color and subtle command of light. With a focus on interior, architecture, and lifestyle photography, her intriguing images evoke energetic feelings as well as a calming peace, inviting viewers to pause and contemplate the simplicity that surrounds them.
Originally from The Netherlands, Kemps is an artist with a traveling heart. Having lived and worked across cities around the world, traveling is what inspired and helped her to develop the rich, multilayered, and textural appearance of her imagery. Kemps finds beauty in lines, textures, organic shapes, and natural materials—from the angle to the composition, her work is a careful study of minimalism and geometry. Capturing the fleeting moment, her softly-hued imagery has the power to transport us to places lodged in our memories or imagined on the horizon. For Kemps, the final element of her work is always the viewer. The intimacy of her images and the unique details of light and shadow draws the viewer in, encouraging them to observe the greater depth revealed upon closer inspection.
