De Ruijter has documented the open landscapes of the Netherlands and Iceland, made repeated trips to the American Southwest, and with the help of Google Earth, De Ruijter has also turned his creative attention to agriculture The view of his subject is most often from above, with images unconventionally captured while skillfully piloting a kite or fishing rod. Working in video as well as still image photography—and Photoshop manipulation of Google Earth images—De Ruijter captures the subtle variations of landscape altered by human intervention over time.

Artist Talk: Gerco de Ruijter / On The Grid

Dutch artist Gerco de Ruijter, a celebrated photographer based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, is the Ulrich Underground artist-in-residence for 2015, with work on view from July 18–September 13, 2015. While in Wichita, De Ruijter will continue his aerial observations of the land. He will capture a 360 degree panorama image from a center pivot irrigation arm, and also launch a new project that examines the “grid corrections” along Kansas county boundaries.
