About

My name is Pierre Monkau. I’m a photographer based in Rotterdam ZH(Netherlands>

In 2010 I picked up my first camera because I went to travel overseas and wanted to show my family some nice pics when I got home. During this time a created a strong passion for photography. As I began to advance in my art I started to develop an affection for portraiture photography.

For me, photography is a way to express creativity but also a way to evoke emotion and meet all kind of people. In my opinion, photography is the art of materializing ones visions, feelings and emotions.

Ansel Adams:
‘When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.’
