Philippe Vogelenzang was born in Zandvoort, one of the major beach resorts located in the Netherlands. Upon completing high school he moved to Amsterdam. With a background in Art History, Philippe enrolled in the photography department at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. After one year he decided to develop himself independently as an autodidact. From that point onward, driven by imagination, curiosity, and intuition, Philippe produced magic in his images. His photos maintain a classic quality yet relay dynamism, honesty and exuberance.
With a keen interest in personal histories and the unique qualities dispersed through humankind, Philippe aims to articulate the distinction of individual human presence in his photographs. Philippe is based in Amsterdam, but works between London, Paris, and New York. His clients include V magazine, VMan, Vogue Hommes International, L’Uomo Vogue, Vogue Netherlands, Candy, Scotch & Soda, Dsection, ZOO, and L’Officiel Hommes.
He was part of the exposition; 'Don’t Stop Now, Fashion Photography Next' (2014), FOAM Photomuseum, Amsterdam (curated by Magdalene Keaney), and is featured in the book of Thames & Hudson. Several selections of his work are represented by FOAM Editions.
