Pie Aerts is a Dutch photographer based in Amsterdam but typically on the road, documenting his travels around the world. He loves long road trips, the cosmos, sunlight, and bygone days, but above all else, telling stories. As a child, there was nothing he loved more than drawing. It taught him to use his imagination and create stories within the four corners of a canvas. Years later, he uses that visual storytelling as a photographer in an attempt to connect viewers with whatever he sees, whether it is people, wildlife, or landscapes.
'paints a rich tapestry of unseen life'(BOAT, September 2019); 'Aerts has a genuine interest and respect for the people, landscapes and animals he photographs, and this shines through in his work' (Outdoor Photography, October 2019); 'people in the most amazing circumstances' (Wanderlust, Octoer 2019)
