Annelies Damen graduated from the Academy of Photography, Amsterdam
in 2006, after transforming her career from business to fine art photography. Using this medium, Damen (born in ‘68, lives in Amsterdam) has skill fully and sensitively captured strong female imagery from a myriad of cultures. This female poetry complements the surrounding landscape, creating a fluid interaction in her work.
Damen’s photography has taken her across many continents; her favourite
is Africa where she describes the magic, proud independence and sensuality of women in a variety of cultures, as the inspiration for her work.
As an artist she demonstrates the symphony between the female form in natural settings, creating a painterly meeting of shadows, shapes and lines, that are steeped in organic beauty.
