Joram Blomkwist (1979) is a photographer from Amsterdam, Netherlands.
His father worked as a set dresser for film and television, where Blomkwist spent many times in studios and on film sets. Influenced by this, he attended the Art Direction School.
After graduating, Blomkwist assisted national and international photographers.
In those years his interests evolved from advertising photography (from the front) more to portraying the back of our consumption.
Blomkwist researches, collects and photographs consumed or destroyed objects and shows the results of human activity.
