There are many ways to create a photographic view on the world. Some photographers focus on the representation of reality, documenting everyday stories or people, other present an artificially view on the world: A great example for this is dutch photographer Fleur van Dodewaard.
The work of the dutch photographer is a graphical interpretation of everyday phenomena. Maybe it would fit a little bit better, if you call Fleur an image maker, as a photographer. She choose simple materials to create strong images with a graphical power, based on clear colors and straight geometry. Fleur does not only depict everyday phenomena, she creates abstracts of them and reflect the medium photography in every picture she takes. She choose simple materials to create strong images .
Fleur was educated in Theatre at the University of Amsterdam and Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague before enrolling in the Photography course at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. So Fleur is very familiar with the art of presentation and the staging of things. Her work stands in the great tradition of still life producing of the Netherlands, but it goes further than that: she weaves a complex network of references in her work: The art of staging, presenting, image making and interpreting the world. Fleur's work exist in between all these terms and never unveiled it's last secret.
