Claudia den Boer (1979, NL) studied visual arts and photography at art academy AKV|St.Joost (NL) and got a teachers degree at art academy ABV (NL). Anchors is her most recent long-term personal project made into a photo book. The book is designed by Rob van Hoesel and published by the Eriskay Connection in 2016. It was presented at International Photo Festival Breda Photo 2016 and also was part of the Experimental Book Platform by Punto de Fuga during Paris Photo 2016. In the spring of 2017 the book will be exhibited at Photo festival Naarden (NL) and Athens Photo Festival (GR). Recently her work has been selected for the collection of FotoFilmic/PULP Gallery in Vancouver (CA).
Claudia participated in two desert AIR-programs; in the New Mexican desert (US, 2013) and the Sahara (MA, 2015) while making the work which became Anchors. In 2016 she was selected to take part in the International Summer School of Photography (ISSP, LV) and her next upcoming work period will be at International Art Residency Can Serrat (ES) on a partial grant. Next to working as a freelance photography teacher she’s interested in collaborating in multi disciplinary projects. In the past she worked with architectural firm Ontwerplab (NL) on research project and publication Verborgen Stad (Hidden City) and recently started collaborating with choreographer Katja Grässli (CH/NL) on a long-term project; a crossover between dance, sign language and photography on the subject of silence.
