Elmar Dam is a Dutch art photographer who was initially inspired by abandoned and desolate buildings. The emptiness of these structures expressed a certain characteristic which Elmar Dam wanted to absorb and display within his photographs. Nevertheless, these buildings had limitations. He could only photograph what he encountered and although he was able to play with photography, the objects he photographed were unchangeable. In the year 2011, he therefore also started to photograph models and now he is mixing the elements of buildings with the inspiration that models give him. He shows specific ideas and themes in his photos.
