His films are typified by the language of intimate images, a poetic structure and enormous involvement. Van Zantvoort observes with great attention and takes us into a world of people who try to survive but are confronted by external powers as tourism, international commerce and mass communication. In his short career of making films and art, the Dutch born director and cameraman has screened his works at hundreds film festivals around the world, has been awarded and nominated 14 times and has taught and written on photography and documentary making in various institutions.
