The haunting photography of Eelze J. Ploegh shows a still yet tense world. Ploegh captures the earth taken over by modern living. He photographs bus stops under yawning gray skies, country roads dwarfed by eighteen-wheeler trucks, and parking lots splintered with patches of grass. There are rarely any people; instead, the landscape speaks for itself. Ploegh's work is composed precisely, elaborately, and beautifully. The light and colors shine brightly, throwing the subjects into sharp relief and achieving a fragile tranquility.
Ploegh was born in Smallingerland, The Netherlands and today lives in Goutum nearby Leeuwarden.
