My photographic work focuses on the relationship between the female body and nature.

How the body and nature discover each other, heal, reject, come together, become one.

I make photographic self-portraits and photo collages and I design artzines to express this relationship.

I find inspiration in nature itself and especially flowers, from my own (day) dreams, fairy tales,

my personal journey and from art & literature by feminist artists.

By turning the analogue and digital photo camera on me, I observe, explore and rediscover

the relationship between my own body and nature. I photograph intimate detail portraits of my body as well as

full-body nude portraits, with the self-timer or together with my partner and artist Jasper.

I pose in nature. I add nature in my images through montage, double exposure and artistic print and transfer techniques.

I love working with my analogue 35mm cameras and my Polaroid cameras.

 

My photo collages are portraits with botanical, nature and folklore elements.

I use my collection of photo books and magazines, found vintage photos at markets and my own photo archive.

Each collage is composed of 4 to 5 elements. I cut, slice or tear these elements.

A portrait emerges while I intuitively search for photos at flea markets and in magazines as well as

during the process of sliding, removing and adding image elements, such a magical journey.

With love, Isabelle
