Pascal Vossen is a Dutch photographer based in London. Through his work, he explores the relationships between people and their direct environment and the impacts they have on each other, whether through personal crisis, troubling socio-economic times, or other external factors. Questions related to identity, fatherhood and masculinity are of particular interest to Pascal and drive his long-term project documenting a young father and his family in a forested region of middle Sweden. His journey into photography began as an intern at ‘NOOR’ collective in Amsterdam, after which he decided to complete an MA in photojournalism and documentary photography.
What was it that drew you to the Star Wars Families commission?
I applied for the commission because of the focus on the family unit and how I would be able to explore the power of a legacy to bring generations together. It also touches upon the topics that particularly interest me, like identity, youth and subcultures.
