Born in the Netherlands, Jo Brunenberg (1949) ‘discovered’ photography at the age of fourteen and was immediately fascinated by the magic of the medium.
Now, over 50 years later, his work has been published in numerous photo books and magazines and has been exhibited in galleries and museums in cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Hamburg, Neurenberg, Lausanne, Paris, Lyon, Arles, Madrid, Antwerpen, Gent, Dublin, Montréal, Baltimore, Chicago and New York.
Recurring themes in his work are the male nude, architecture and typography.
Jo Brunenberg often travels through France, where he realized recent series such as ‘Fermeture Définitive’ in which he reveals his fascination with the typical architecture and typography of traditional small shops in France. In many towns and villages such shops have been closed or are about to disappear. In his recent series 'Châteaux d'Eau de France' Brunenberg portrays typical French water towers.
