Philippe Vogelenzang was born in Zandvoort, The Netherlands, known as Amsterdam’s seaside shore. He moved to Amsterdam as soon as he finished High School. With a background in Art History, Philippe applied for the photography department of the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. After one year he decided to develop himself further as an autodidact. From that point, driven by imagination, curiosity and intuition, Philippe started creating images that often seem to render a classic quality being dynamic, honest and playful.
With a big love for people he finds beauty in all unique personalities and aims to capture an iconic presence or intensity in the one he photographs. Being based in Amsterdam still, Philippe works between London, Paris, and New York. His clients include V magazine, VMan, Vogue Hommes International , L’Uomo Vogue , Vogue Netherlands, Candy, Scotch & Soda, Dsection, ZOO & L’Officiel Hommes.
He was part of the exposition; ‘Don’t Stop Now, Fashion Photography Next’ (2014), FOAM Photomuseum, Amsterdam (curated by Magdalene Keaney), and is featured in the book of Thames & Hudson. Several selections of his work are represented by FOAM Editions.
