Astrid Zuidema graduated from the KABK in The Hague in 1992.
Subsequently she started working as a photographer (fashion and portrait) and took part in an exhibition with Ruud van der Peijl at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 1996 where some seven images (up to two metres high) were incorporated in the exhibiotion called Scanning.
Her works were published in a great number of magazines, including Dutch, Elle, Volkskrant Magazine, Linda, Attitude, MAX, Carl’s Cars etc. Also her works were published in several books.
Since around 2014 her personal uncommissioned work evolved, making collages and sensitive still-lifes with strong sculptural elements. Astrid is interested in the soul of an image and aims to capture the traces of time and experience on natural objects.
