Arthur SlikBiography: I live in a small town in the south of the Netherlands. Photography is my ruling passion. I am partially an autodidact. After learning skill and tactics of photography all by myself, I enthousiasticly followed some courses and workshops with some renowned photographers. Source of my inspiration no doubt is nature. Artists I admire and who inspire me, are Yvens (a landscape photographer out of the Netherlands), Sieff, Weston, Adams and Sexton, but also photographers of the female beauty, Ommer and Gnade. Surely you may find the influence of these photographers in my landscape and nude photographs. Besides I admire and am influenced also by the impressionists, Van Gogh, Renoir and Gauguin. My landscape photography I try consciously to reduce to work in the Netherlands. Within my figure and nude photography nature and landscape are very important. I try to put down a powerful human figure, as well in studio as in landscape itself. In both situations the organic idea is important, man (or mostly woman in my photographs) must fit in the natural surroundings.....
