Rob Hornstra (1975) is a documentary photographer. Since he graduated he has worked predominantly on long-term projects, both at home and on the other side of the world. His work is characterised by a stylised rawness, with a large dose of intrinsic engagement. He has published five books on his own (Empty Land Promised Land Forbidden Land, On the Other Side of the Mountains, 101 Billionaires, Roots of the Rúntur, Communism & Cowgirls) which, despite increasing print runs, sell out ever faster. He has been commissioned by international magazines to produce documentary series. He has also taken part in numerous (solo) exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad, in addition to his own work as a documentary maker.
Rob is based in the Netherlands.
