‘Bas Losekoot created photographs with a heightened sense of drama that freeze moments of movement, halting the frenetic pace of passing inhabitants in megacities. His project also explores how, counterintuitively, the commute can be a time for introspection and psychological divorce from reality.’
– Ruby Goldberg/The New Yorker
‘Exploring the dynamics of the streets; capturing a moment in time that you can delve into and resonate with on a very human level. Losekoot asks thoughtful questions of society by holding up a mirror and inviting honest examination.’
– Lyric Lewin/CNN Editions
‘Bas Losekoot’s project Out of Place shows us Street Photography Reinvented.’
– Julien Bolle/Réponses Photo
‘Living in cities is to accept a life of paradox. We are physically squashed but emotionally distant. We are sick of people, but we are achingly lonely. (…)This is all to see in Losekoot’s faces, which reveal this paradoxical state with such disarming precision. The calm and the chaos, the beauty and the terror, the comedy and the tragedy, the depths of a soul from an urban life captured in a single frame.
