Ludo Leideritz was born in the Netherlands, and as a part of his Dutch upbringing, was introduced to the arts at an early age. Music, drawing and painting were hobbies; these formed the basis of his expressions.
His love of nature and historic places came as a result of his many travels around the world. He took up photography when we was eighteen. The first camera was a Canon FT, which went everywhere with him. His photographic skills were at first self-acquired, mostly through extensive readings and practice over the years. These were later refined through formal training and workshops with renowned practitioners.
His main method of image capture is still film, using a large-format cam- era. This enables him to resolve image quality that allows many possibilities, from platinum prints to large murals. To him, it’s all about the print; the final expression of the phographic artist. The ability to make the print resonate to the viewer is the objective.
