Niels Stomps was born in Driebergen, The Netherlands, in 1974 and now works and lives in Amsterdam. He studied photography at the Utrecht School of the Arts, where he is currently a guest lecturer. In 2007 he received his master’s degree at the St. Joost Academy in Breda.
His work consists of series of photographs, focusing on the way people react to major changes, sociological or environmental, changes that are so big and overwhelming that the individual can only adapt to the inevitable.
Stomps prefers to present his photographs as a sequence of images and to combine several series into one publication. His work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad, and he has won many international awards.
