Paul Boger’s studio in Tilburg is a treasure trove of curiosities, oddities and sculptural forms. The artist transforms two-dimensional images into dizzying optical illusions. His workspace is a playground, allowing for ever more experimental approaches to the photographic medium.
"I like to surround myself with things that inspire me. It's an essential part of my working process."
"If the image already exists, I don’t need to create it anymore. If I have created the image, I don’t need to look for it anymore."
"When I create, I try to play rather than think."
"I need to have my studio brimming with what I call "possibilities"."

“Fascinated by photography’s overlooked potential to create dizzying optical illusions, Paul Bogaers transforms flat images and found objects into new sculptural forms.“
“...archival photographs are essential for transmitting history and experience to new generations, because stories that contain images generate empathy, and will reach younger people in a more emotional way.“
