I am Nienke Elenbaas (1966) a Dutch photographer based in the Netherlands (Naarden). From my early twenties I started making pictures of my friends and found out that people are my main subject in my work as a photographer. I try to be a fly on the wall so they will forget I am around.. Clients are Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, Julius Centre UMCU, AMC, Rijksoverheid. I have made several books (the big five of South Africa about the strength of the women living in the communities. Personal Best about the Paralympic Games in London 2012. Fly Away the health care for fugititives coming to the Netherlands. In november last I visited Accra for the Julius Foundation UMCU to cover their work.
