ABOUT OLIVIER CALKOEN

South African/ Dutch abstract art photographer Olivier Calkoen has perfected his style through self-exploration.

Inspired by the beauty in nature, Olivier aims to fuel people’s imaginations through making normally unseen environments visible to the naked eye.

Olivier explores self-made macro and abstract worlds as well as the conceptual beauty in everyday life, from crystals to minerals and metals.  This website is a showcase of his best work.

Olivier: ‘’Using a macro lens allows you to explore beyond what we perceive as reality, opening up a whole new world of artistry.''
