visual storytelling

SiesvanHintum develops and produces visual stories with a strongly documentary character that offer insights into how people live and work, the difficulties they encounter, and the kinds of inventiveness and courage seen when they face up to those difficulties.

Ruud Sies is a photographer with a sharp documentary eye, receptive above all to traces left by human experience in specific environments and situations, and on people’s faces. For Ruud photography is not an end in itself but an instrument that enables him to offer the world a fresh perspective on important and troubling issues that affect us all. It involves looking at people and their circumstances with curiosity and a capacity for astonishment and admiration.

Hanneke van Hintum is a producer whose strategic thinking ensures that the images, the stories, and the form of the final result fit together in such a way that facts and insights, drama and wisdom, head and heart are all given their proper place.

SiesvanHintum Visual/Stories operates as a duality, whether on commission or autonomously. Within the framework defined by a project, it gives the work its own unique signature. When working autonomously, SiesvanHintum takes the lead and seeks the means to achieve publication.


not just books

As a team of photographer and producer, SiesvanHintum acts as the director of the project, and this may lead to the involvement of writers, experts, designers, curators or multimedia specialists. The end result might well be a beautiful book, but sometimes audiovisual and digital forms are more suitable.

always stay behind the photographer

That's what I do, staying behind the photographer. When it comes to production then I come in the picture. Together with Ruud, I work on longterm photo projects and photography assignments.
