Celebrity Photographer Maarten de Boer '00's new exhibit "Het Gezicht/The Face" in the May Gallery beginning Sept. 6.
Maarten is an LA-based photographer, alumnus of Webster University and recipient of “Distinguished Alumnae of the Year” in 2017. Maarten’s photographic subjects are a Who’s Who of Hollywood’s film and television A-List. He has photographed Morgan Freeman, James McAvoy, Rebel Wilson, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga and countless others.
Born in a small coastal town in Scotland, Maarten was raised in a Dutch household. He has strong ties to his Scottish upbringing and his family’s Dutch roots. His exhibit “Het Gezicht” (Dutch for “The Face”) aptly explains this artist’s striking assemblage of celebrity portrait photography. De Boer’s images are beautifully composed with expert use of motion, lighting and expression to capture the subtle nuances of the celebrity subjects’ personality.
His exhibit of Celebrity Portraits “Het Gezicht” will be on view at the Webster University May Gallery on Sept. 6-27, 2019. A reception and artist talk with Maarten de Boer will be held on Friday, Sept. 27, 2019, from 5-7 p.m. The May Gallery and May Gallery Events are free and open to the public.
