After graduating from art school in 2010, Peter de Krom moved back to his hometown Hoek van Holland, a Dutch town trapped between the North Sea, ‘het Westland’ greenhouse area and the channel to the Rotterdam harbours. A common theme in his work is peculiar human behaviour on a large scale but in small places. When people exhibit herd mentality because they are part of a small community or when certain events invite them to, De Krom exploits the situations with a biological/anthropological interest, documenting his subjects almost as a species apart. In the series 't Hok De Krom photographed young people partying in improvised spaces, from garages to green houses.
Peter de Krom was included in the BKMRKS section of GUP #35, The Celebration Issue.
