Rubén Dario Kleimeer [Acándí Choco, Colombia 1978] is an artist/ photographer from Rotterdam with family ties in Gdynia [Poland].
He uses the medium photography to analyse and better understand urban spaces. With the gaze of an urban ethnographer, a researcher of spatial and social contexts, he explores the built environment in which we live, work and dwell. 

He studied interior architecture and fine arts at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam followed by a Masters in Photography at AKV|St.Joost Breda. 

What you pass is being highlighted. Ruben Dario Kleimeer abstracts Rotterdam in his recent series Imaginary Perspectives. From his imagination he photographs his hometown.

Through the collection and selection of images, Ruben’s love for architecture and skateboarding come together. Ruben approaches his work with an almost dogmatic slant. Balanced, tight and abstracted from its surroundings. In an intriguing way, he focuses on special forms in Rotterdam.
