Raúl Neijhorst: Taking Photos with Passion


Written by team Evita Date: August 30, 2019


Raúl Neijhorst came into contact with his passion for photography while studying technical physics at the TU Delft, an area that he later turned into his work. Neijhorst achieved success both nationally and internationally and won several awards and prizes with his photos. In 2008, for example, he won the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th prize at the “Any Body Any Image” photo contest of the Surinamese Photographers Association (Sufov).

Neijhorst holds the Artist fiap (Afiap), the Excellence fiap (Efiap) and the Efiap/b award. With these awards, the artistic qualities, techniques, and the production of the photos, which Neijhorst has made/makes are also recognized.


Neijhorst maintains strong ties with his home country Surinam. He held a national book fundraising campaign of photography literature, which was donated to the Sufov. Together with a fellow photographer he also gave workshops in Suriname and on Curaçao in 2009, 2011 and 2014.


I am happy that I have been standing in front of the camera of this photo artist for more than 6 years now. A photographer who, just like me, has chosen to follow his own passion and places his creativity and fantasy in every photo. A photographer who avoids falling into all kinds of trends, but chooses a picture where I stand best and where my uniqueness comes out best and last but not least inspires me to push my limits.
