The Journey of Mark van den Heuvel: From Telecom to Fine Art Photography

Mark van den Heuvel was born in The Netherlands in 1982 and raised in the picturesque city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. His early years were marked by tumultuous school experiences, but he eventually found his calling in the sound engineering and event management industry, working on numerous national and international events. After a decade, Mark switched gears and entered the telecom business, quickly rising to the position of regional manager at a large international firm.

However, in 2016, Mark realised that his true passion lay in fine art photography, which he had been pursuing as a hobby for many years. He quit his job in commercial business and dedicated himself full-time to his passion. His first photo production, "Alienation," was released at the end of 2016 and was quickly recognized by a local art gallery. His debut, "The Ego Has Landed," and his polaroid series quickly sold out, marking the beginning of a successful career in fine art photography.

Mark's work has earned him numerous accolades, including two unique photographs from the "Hieronymus Garden" 2017 series added to the collection of the Hieronymus Bosch House 2017 as a private collection. The photographs were displayed in the former house of the famous painter Hieronymus Bosch in the Netherlands. In the beginning of 2021, Mark's "Stadhuis II" x 2 were added to the municipality and country collections of Karlskoga municipality & The county art & culture unit, Regional Värmland, Sweden.

Mark's photography has continued to draw attention, with "Moerputten" from the "Alienation" photo series purchased by Årjäng municipality in 2022, and "Color Madness" from the same series purchased by Regional Värmland at the summer art exhibition at Laxholmen Kulturhus in Munkfors.

In the middle of 2023, Mark's photograph "School Of Wonders I" was purchased by Arvika municipality on the first day of his duo exhibition at the municipality art centre. Mark's work is inspired by the fast-paced and ever-changing society, and he sees himself as an autodidact. He aims to elicit both smiles and frowns from viewers through his photography.

Currently, Mark and his wife reside in Sweden, where they run Studio Mark & Jimena, a photo gallery, summer shop and marketing agency. Mark continues to produce fine art photographs, drawing inspiration from global societal issues and debates.
