About me


Albert Nanning grew up in Groningen and became involved with photography and film during his study Dutch Language and Literature. He took a course in black and white photography and was occupied as a filmprogrammer at a movie theater for students for several years. He now lives and works in Amsterdam where he scours the streets in search of images. Also he likes to write and published two books, see also here.


Nanning is autodidact.

Development & Style

From 2004 he fully focused on digital photography. His work is characterized by a strong emphasis on framing, lineplay and shooting from extreme angles. This resulted in his mirror collages (Symmetry) that are both striking and intruiging, often with very powerful colors. Furthermore he's fascinated by trees, wind and objects changing over time.
Nowadays Albert focusses more on making series. He also started portraying people in the streets of Amsterdam.


You don't have to go far to discover beauty, It's closer than you think.
And one of my favorite writers Martin Bril once wrote: "First an artist has the obligation to search for beauty and second not to fall in the pit of seriousness."

Exhibitions & News


I've been focussing on digital art lately which led to a whole new sectors called 'Digital' and 'Photoart'. Less harmonic, kind of controlled chaos. Also the focus becomes more to making series and projects. Website has been altered for the future.


I've made two books in recent years. Spoorboek and Tramboek


Through crowdfunding I'm busy making a book of travelling Holland by train and making notes, and photo's. See for details this website.
