Exhibition Desirée Dolron

The Dutch photographer Desirée Dolron was born in 1963.
She made a series of photographs that made her very well known. It was a series of people and their religious rituals.

Since then, she is regarded as one of the most important Dutch photographers of today and her work hangs in several museums all over the world.

Her work is very divers; she made a beautiful series in Cuba, Te di Todos mis sueños (2002-2003), and made portraits of people under water Gaze, (1996-1998).
I love how the atmosphere of each of these series is completely different because she tries out new techniques.

In the last years she has been working on a very special series of portraits in which she uses the light to make the photographs resemble old Dutch paintings. I never knew you could do something like this with photo's, and the results are breathtaking.

Last weekend I visited the exhibition of her work, and I loved it very much. There were paintings from the different series she did, but also videoinstallations.
The exhibition can be seen at the Singer museum in Laren and it is there until May 14th 2017.

Here are a few more examples of the amazing photographs of Desirée Dolron.
