Midlife, 2018

From Mark Uyl [translated]

Genre: photography, coming-of-age documentary

In Midlife, photographer Mark Uyl takes you on a visual journey from the beginning of his passion for photography to the professional photographer he is today.

Using more than 20 years of archive footage, interviews and short clips, Mark shows an intimate world through his eyes. Many famous people have stood in front of his lens and some of them have their say. They give interpretation to his photography.

Midlife started as a video diary and has developed into a documentary in which Mark tells the story himself.
The story about the need for intimacy between photographer and subject, the search for beauty, from dark to light.
The story of a photographer on a journey without a destination.

Egbert-Jan Weeber, Huub Stapel, Isa Hoes, Marlies Dekkers, Henriette Tol, Antonie Kamerling, Anneke van Giersbergen, Anita van Veen
