Born in Judibana, Venezuela in 1961, Ron van
Dongen was raised in Warmond, The Netherlands.
He studied photography at the Academy of Art
College in San Francisco and currently resides in
Portland Oregon. Ron van Dongen's seductive
black and white florals unearth floral secrets and
symbols of our alternately nurturing and perilous
relationship with nature. In simple arrangements
and with masterful printing techniques, van
Dongen conjures visual sensations that can reflect
the struggles and confusions of everyday life in
memorializing the beautiful, the simple, the flower.
