‘Where the dreamers go' shows us more than 200 beautiful pictures from photographer Marcel van Luit. With an edition of only 100 copies, this is a real collector's item.
Marcel van Luit's photos harbour messages about hope, trust and love. Marcel wants to show that using your imagination makes anything possible. He likes to look through the eyes of a child when making his work. With amazement and unlimited imagination he creates worlds he would like to escape to when times get dark.
In a time of fear of terror - for example - climate change or losing your freedom of speech, he wants to offer hope. Many people are looking for meaning. We seek comfort when we mourn, we want to be guided toward wisdom, we need a mirror when we are insecure, calmed down when we are anxious and find new hope when we feel lost. Art can play a major role in this. Marcel wants to touch people with the emotions and reassurance his work conveys. With this book he wants to help others to go where the dreamers go when they need it most.
This limited edition is not just a book, but also a work of art in itself
Due to the application of black thermal ink, the actual cover of the book will only appear when it is touched. This is one example of the various never before used techniques that have been applied to this book.
On top of this beautiful edition - delivered in a luxury leather bag - you may also choose a fine art print from the 25 selected images by Marcel van Luit. This photo will be printed for you in museum quality in a 60 x 75 cm size. You can view the selection below:
About Marcel van Luit
Marcel van Luit is a Dutch artist, born and raised in Groningen. He studied to become a teacher and worked as a residential counsellor before starting his career in the art world. His journey to become the artist he is today started in 2013, quite unexpectedly. At the time, Marcel worked in a mental health institution and he and his wife had just become parents to their first son, Otis. His life was completely turned upside down when he suddenly fell ill and was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré, a rare disease. For a long time he was completely paralyzed and after the first months in hospital he was transferred to a rehabilitation centre. It would take another year or so before he would finally come home. When his upper body slowly started working again and he had way too much time on his hands in the rehabilitation centre so he had to look for a hobby. At that time he was still in a wheelchair and it would be a win-win situation if he could find something to help him through the days and at the same time train the muscles in his hands and fingers.
He started taking photos. Each time his son came to visit he took as many pictures of him as he could; he missed him terribly. He began to edit Otis' photos and turned them into dream worlds. Since Marcel couldn't go out with his son, he digitally created the adventures he wanted to experience with him. He discovered a completely new passion and talent that he didn't know he carried in him. He developed his own signature by playing with different colour tones, and dark and light. These two go hand in hand according to Marcel. Out of the deep, dark hole he ended up in because of his illness, a lot of light eventually emerged.
