Gerrit Schreurs developed a distinctly unique approach to a wide range and variety of different commissions, in which he further expanded and perfected his fascination for the possibilities afforded by technique and content-related insight. This resulted until today in a pure and specific photographic profile adding sometimes even surrealistic undertones to his work, particularly to his non-commissioned oeuvre. Taking stock after the thousands of pictures he has made during his career, his enthusiasm and interest to continually seeking out new challenges both in terms of technique and content is without a doubt the greatest motivation and incentive for his work. Schreurs is always open to new ideas and embraces new techniques and new grounds, such as film. So, exploring film-territory and the new possibilities of this discipline in depth soon led to a series of documentaries and commercials, that now form an impressive part of the Gerrit Schreurs portfolio. For the filming projects Schreurs as a director works with camera operator and editor Maurits Veldhuijzen van Zanten.
In short: Gerrit Schreurs, definitely is not one dogmatically working on a univocal oeuvre, on the contrary, he enjoys courting adventure, both in his choice of commissions and in his non-commissioned work.
