Dutch hacker portraits – Visualising code

Programmers, hackers and cryptographers

This series of studio portraits were taken between October 2014 and March 2015. With this project I create photographic portraits of individuals who work in the field of computer engineering. These people work on a daily basis with various programming languages, they can be considered hackers, tinkerers and mechanics. This sub scene is formed by mostly young men, who have an extraordinary interest in computers networks and other hardware involved. The young individuals are enthusiastic about machines with silicon chips and often want to know every last detail of the hardware and software. For these series i asked the hackers to visualise their code and programming language while they were being photographed.
