Judith Helmer (1982) graduated from the Fotovakschool in 2017. Her graduation project ‘Identically Different’ was subsequently published in one of the Dutch Newspapers ‘NRC’ and will be shown in Paris, during the festival Circulation(s), a photo festival for Young European photographers, in 2018. She has won the Keep an Eye Fotovakschool Award 2017 with a sequel of her Graduation Project, the project plan ‘Family Matters’.
Judith has been fascinated with personal stories and family dynamics from a young age. Stories that require you to take a closer look, in order to reveal that not everything is what it may look like at first sight. Identity, roots and family history are recurring themes in het photography.
