b. 1995, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
My name is Bebe Blanco Agterberg. I am a Dutch photographer. The projects I make are dealing with the relationship between politics, media and citizens. How these three opponents feed each other, need each other, but also have a constant power struggle.
I examine the reliability of the image in the post-truth era, it forms a grey area where fact and fiction live close to each other. This is the area from where I position myself. I use artificial light in order to give a cinematic feeling to the work, which is based on emotions that tries to lure its audience into believing what is created in front of them. In my work I take on the role of a director that investigates what truth means in modern times.
