Happy to introduce myself; I am René Koster, a photographer based in the Amsterdam area in the Netherlands. The work I make mostly concentrates on portrait, documentary and reportage. Having a keen interest in art and history often shows in my work. During my time at the Art Academy I was already fascinated by classic portrait paintings. I have been making portraits of politicians and people working in the culture and arts sector for several magazines. When traveling I always reserve an important role for portraiture.
