Bram Engelaar (1994) is a young photographer and film maker, focused on cultural and geopolitical imagery.
Born and raised in Utrecht, the Netherlands, Bram developed an interest in photography and film at the
University of Applied Sciences in his hometown. During his degree in Communication and Multimedia Design,
Bram worked as an intern at two creative production agencies. At Oxford House Amsterdam Bram got the opportunity
to see how the sausage is made at big productions and got to take the responsibility of small productions.
During his second internship at Hyper-Epic, he contributed to the interactive documentary Big Village.
With this project Bram got to see filmmaking from an artistic perspective.Contrary to the
commercial filmmaking at Oxford House, Hyper-Epic taught Bram to focus on the aesthetics. A half year exchange
program in Seoul, South Korea, and an NGO project in Panama kindled his interest in documentary
film and photography, showing different cultures and people.
One of the projects Bram is currently working on is opening a public dark room that gives amateur
and professional photographers the opportunity to work with analog photography
