Ruth van Beek’s highly original aesthetic draws upon a growing archive of found photographic material using specialist books, catalogues and magazines from the 50s, 60s and 70s as it’s primary source. She has found ways to produce odd and playful collages by carefully selecting, cutting out or sometimes pasting or folding images in ways that transform them creating a hidden reality; a world of dreams and weirdness and beautiful coincidences.

Ruth Van Beek, born in 1977, lives and works in Koog aan de Zaan, in the Netherlands.

Dashwood Books is owned and operated by David Strettell formerly the Cultural Director of Magnum Photos where for the last twelve years he produced numerous books and exhibitions advised on countless photographic projects and developed extensive relationships in publishing and media, as well as with museums, galleries and with photographers all over the world.
