Willem Popelier (b. 1982) is working with photography. His focus is on the mechanisms and politics of representation. He researches the generally accepted ways in which portraits are used, and how identity is represented and perceived through photography. Thus his focus is mostly on popular culture, the ubiquitous image and its effects on society.
His work is exhibited worldwide, published in magazines such as C Photo and Foam Magazine, awarded with several prizes including a C/O Berlin Talent, a Bronze Medal for Best Book Design from all over the World, and nominated for the ICP Infinity Award and the Prix Pictet, among others.
