Renata Dutrée, 59 years old, based in Voorschoten (Nl) graduated from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam. She specializes in Fine Art photography and often uses social themes as the starting point. Renata’s photography explores the acts of hiding or revealing – living with secrets and the journey to concealing these from the world.
There is a sense of apprehension that fills the compositions – objects act as metaphors for something else happening beyond the frame. Drawing the eye through bold aesthetics and props, the images then reveal a deeper truth.
She uses photography to transform pain and sorrow into beauty, often with the past still resonating in the photograph. Personal stories are translated to more universal ones.
She is inspired by the great artists in painting and sculpture of the previous centuries, especially the Greek and Roman period, the Renaissance and the Golden
