Holger Pooten is a photographer that does art photography as well as commercial work and both are quite interesting. His work has a kind of dark humor to it, somewhat disturbing in some of the images. The color photos have beautiful rich colors and really good use of studio lighting as well. His use of lighting creates great shadows to many of the photos he has done.
In the photo that has someone on fire I think the way the shadows in the photo lead the eye back to the person that is on fire is a very good use of the lighting to give the image good leading lines. Many of his photos seem to be telling a story but sometimes it is not real clear on what that might be and others have a more clear direction such as the one with the girl in the bathtub.
