The Meticulous World of Scheltens & Abbenes

Having worked together on various projects (and having been a couple for many years), photographer Maurice Scheltens and visual artist Liesbeth Abbenes have decided to consolidate their professional collaboration. The specialty of Scheltens & Abbenes is to meticulously arrange objects - chairs, glassware, shirts, perfume bottles - into configurations that have a strong two-dimensional or graphic character. Essential to their work is the process in the studio where they construct their settings. A laborious process, in which Scheltens & Abbenes continuously move things around, painstakingly join pieces together and adjust little details.
