Ruud van Empel’s ‘fantasy portraits’ at Beetles+Huxley

Faces too symmetrical, clothes perfectly ironed, trees with not a leaf out of place, there’s something unsettling about Dutch photographer Ruud van Empel’s work. It sits uncomfortably on the line between reality and fantasy; leaving the viewer full of questions. Who are these children? Where are they? Why is their gaze so blank?
