After ten years of absence as a photographer, due to his eye problem, René Frese ('I Blind Poet') started working again and reactivated his career as a photographer.
He created a new photo studio: B” FLOOR Studios in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Having worked in Antwerp, Milan, Bangkok and Haiti, he settled back in Amsterdam. Nowadays he travels between Amsterdam and Mombasa.
Besides exhibitions all over the world, his work has also been published and reviewed in several international magazines. Frese has one motto: “I am powerless over people, places and things, but at least I am able to photograph them.”
He refuses to be framed in one specific category, as he says: “To photograph people is beautiful and in order to photograph beauty or fashion, one needs people. Therefore I can’t divide my work into categories. No matter what I photograph, it is always about people. Also my still lives are about human behaviour."
