Heleen Peeters (b. Brussels, 1988) studied photography at London College of Communication (UK, 2010) after which she completed an academic master degree in photographic studies at Leiden University (NL, 2014). Since then she works as an independent image-maker on personal projects. Simultaneously she fulfills different positions in the photographic field.
Previous projects have been exhibited in group and solo show at numerous institutions such as Museum M (Leuven, BE), KBC Tower (Antwerp, BE), Felix Meritis (Amsterdam, NL), Subbacultcha (Amsterdam, NL), Business Design Center (London, UK), OXO Tower (London, UK) and Borges Centro Cultural (Buenos Aires, AR)
In 2010 Peeters launched her first self-published book ‘Amandla’, as part of an awareness campaign AIDS orphans in South Africa. These and other series also received attention with newspapers and magazines such as Het Nieuwsblad (BE), De Gazet van Antwerpen (BE), Kiekie Krant (NL), New Dawn (NL), de Amsterdamse Kunstkalender (NL) and Urbanautica (NL/UK).
Alongside her own practice Peeters works “behind the scenes” on photography projects. She was the picture editor of Harmonie - a small scale Belgian art publication - and curator at The Arts Department in Amsterdam. Currently Peeters works as project manager for Paradox, a Dutch documentary photography non-profit, on the production of ‘Turtle 1 – Building a car in Africa’ (Melle Smets/Joost van Onna) and ‘Welkom Today’ (Ad van Denderen/Lebohang Tlali).
