Voeten started to work on his architectural photographs in New York in 1989, with Cambo/Arca Swiss technical camera, 6/9 cm medium format negative, Ilford FP4 film and Orange filter. Up to this day, he still works on his series in the same, consistent way.

Fine condition.

I like to meet my collectors in person. Whenever possible, I personally deliver the print to buyers located in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, The Hague, Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp, Charleroi, Liege and sometimes even New York.

Teun Voeten is an award winning war photographer and author based in New York and Brussels. After his studies of Cultural Anthropology and Philosophy he covered the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia, Colombia, Rwanda, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Honduras, DR Congo, North Korea, Mexico, Libya and Syria and Mexico. He published in Vanity Fair, Newsweek, The New Yorker and National Geographic. Voeten also works for the International Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, Human Rights Watch and the UNHCR.

In 1996, he published 'Tunnel People', an anthropological-journalistic account of living five months with an underground homeless community in New York. 'A Ticket To', 1999, is a photo book with sober black and white war photos. In 2000, he wrote 'How de Body? Hope and Horror in Sierra Leone', a book about a trip to this West African country which nearly ended in disaster when Voeten was hunted down by child soldiers intent on killing him.

Voeten covered the drug war in Mexico, resulting in his photo book ‘Narco Estado. Drug Violence in Mexico.’ Currently, he is writing a PhD dissertation on extreme violence in the Mexican drug war.
