About me

Artist statement
The art of Ton Dirven is to create graphic photographic images featuring a delicate balance between reality and fantasy, approaching with a classic sense of composition the emotive essence of his subject. Ton is also known for his unusual take on black and white nudes. The characteristic features of these photos are expressed in the pure composition and the suggestive use of light.
Images are made using carefully selected (public) locations in The Netherlands playing with the available light. Editing the photographs in Photoshop provides the finishing touch to the raw images by making any necessary adjustments, enhancements or correction of unwanted details.

The photographs in the project “A day in life” are scenes that at first sight look realistic. They appear to be quite ordinary. However, a surrealistic twist is added by using animal masks. The unusual somewhat abnormal content is reinforced by details or actions depicted in the photographs.


“A day in life” resulted after contemplating human behaviour, how persons act and react. Whether human behaviour is based on their own believes and values or on what they think is expected from them. The animal masks symbolise the very often hidden secret thoughts of people.
