That's not to say that van Es is a one-trick still life pony—although a new, ongoing project on his website, "Yes," does seem to be a series of more intricate sill lifes. Apart from this work, he is also extremely interested in memory and its relationship to photography. He seems to be obsessed with the interiors of rooms: one series ("Textures of Childhood") shows fragmentary images of details found in the background of his childhood photographs, while another ("Rooms of Now") shows details from the rooms of his friends, along with a friendly invitation to have him come and photograph your own room. Other series—there are many indeed—show an interest in his home life, as well as found photographs. Given his broad range of interests, and the evident technical ability to realize his ideas, it seems like van Es is unlikely to be remembered as a mere "Tumblr photographer."
