About Claudette van de Rakt
Claudette van de Rakt (1969) got her MFA in 1993 in Breda, The Netherlands. She combines a practice of commercial and fashion photography with autonomous work, in which photography often overlaps with music, text, film and community-based projects. She lives and works in The Netherlands and Belgium. Together with Pim Evers she owns the photostudio Lighthouse.
Throughout his journey, Zjef found inspiration in discovering and creating excitement around emerging artists and showcasing their talents. Inspired by New York’s vibrant art scene, Zjef arrived in the US from his native Netherlands in 2011. Most recently as a partner in Gallery Brooklyn he uncovered new talent across a wide range of mediums. Today he brings this passion for emerging contemporary artists to OneMoreGallery.
