Heleen Peeters (1988, Belgium) studied photography at London College of Communication in the United Kingdom; afterwards she obtained a master degree in media sciences at Leiden University in the Netherlands. Since her graduation Heleen has been working as a freelance photographer on long-term documentary projects. She is concerned with the elusive qualities of fragility and transience in both our landscape and society. Her images are inextricably marked by their place within history, fragments of memory anchored in the past as much as the present. Her photographs have been shown and published by various organisations and newspapers internationally.
Alongside her own practice Heleen works behind the scenes on photography projects. She is active as photo editor and curator at various cultural organisations in Belgium and The Netherlands. In 2018 Heleen was chosen as upcoming talent for the photo editor traineeship at the Dutch quality newspaper NRC.
