Niels Luigjes is an art director and photographer living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

With a passion for street photography he wanders the streets of Amsterdam, looking for extremes in light and darkness.

As an art director, he's always had great interest in photography and worked with many photographers. But he only started photographing himself in a dark period in his life. To clear his head he started wandering the city and with that discovered his passion for black and white photography.

His images are all about dramatic light, perspective and scale, with a sense of surrealism. Mostly unaware passers by become the heroes in his images.
