Calligraphy, photography and typography are the main components, mixed or used individually, in graphics by Ton. Although most of his works contain photography, Ton does not consider himself as a photographer; his creative work starts after the image is taken.
Through post processing, and sometimes merging elements using digital tools and techniques on his iMac, Ton enhances the impact of his images, adding a layer of emotion and/or emphasising the stories they tell. His extensive portfolio of work consists of a wide variety of subjects; beauty can be found in all sorts of places.
Ton has held an academic degree in ‘Penmanship and the history of writing’ since 1986. He later studied photography (NHA) and Digital Graphic Design at the Graphic Lyceum Eindhoven (NL).
