About Verena Blok
Verena Blok (1990) graduated from the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague in 2013, and is currently following her Master degree in Photography at AKV I St. Joost in Breda, The Netherlands. Blok sees her photographic practice as way of embodying a voice of an individual. She is a visual storyteller with a keen interest in people, and intrigued by the way people relate to each other and how cultural developments influence one’s life. Blok photographs very intuitively and likes to be guided by her protagonist(s) along the way to see how the story evolves.
In 2014, her series I Smell Like Rain was exhibited in Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam during the group show 'On The Move: Contemporary Storytelling in Photography and Graphic Design' and during Transphotographiques in Lille, France. Her series was on display at Galeria Fotografii PF, in Poznan, Poland.
