About the part that art plays in a globalising society

Framer Framed

Florian Braakman

Florian Braakman is an autonomous documentary photographer whose work consists of photographic series. Through a personal relationship with the subject, Braakman addresses universal, social and cultural themes. He is interested in communities and researches their characteristics. The artist uses the medium of photography as a way to make contact with people, to question the world and gain a grip on our fast-paced everyday ‘reality’. He employs photographs as a string of images and likes to combine several series together in publications and installations.

Florian Braakman graduated in 2013 from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague with the project She Comes in Colors, which was turned into a book. Currently he is working on the long term project Delfshaven’s Finest, the socially and culturally diverse neighborhood in Rotterdam where the artist himself resides since 2013. From this project the work In Between Homes developed, in which Braakman travels with his neighbors to their country of origin.

In November 2018, Braakman will be the first artist-in-resident at Werkplaats Molenwijk, the new community space set up by Framer Framed. In dialogue with its residents, he created a new photographic work on Molenwijk.
