Iris Koffijberg (1970) is a Dutch abstract water photographer, based in a small village in the middle of a national park. Her water photography doesn't reflect the real world, but transforms it to another imaginary place.
For the last 10 years Iris is totally obsessed with water. “My water photos reflect the way I feel. So I can see when it's busy in my head, when I'm out of balance, when I struggle, when I'm trying to escape my daily life. They're like repeating themes and water is my inexhaustible mirror, my source of inspiration and fascination. Always in motion, never the same. Current, season, density, sun, time and wind cause a continuous change of the image that I am trying to capture. If I am in the right place at the right time, it is magical. As if a gate opens to another temporary world. New patterns, landscapes and beings that come to existence by the grace of that moment.”
