Danielle van Zadelhoff


Danielle van Zadelhoff started contemporary photography in 2013 and her works leave a profound impression. She was born in Amsterdam and now she lives in Belgian town Antwerp. Danielle’s story of becoming a photographer is remarkable. Her father was fond of painting and sculpturing, so Danielle grew up in the atmosphere of creativity. She learned how to express herself in this or that kind of art. Besides, her family library was full of books devoted to art and history. Danielle fell in love with Renaissance artists, and we can see their influence in her works now.
She catches the light, has an eye for detail and works intuitively. She discusses poses with her models but gives them the freedom to do what is comfortable for them. This has a disarming effect on them and is perhaps the reason her images feel so real and natural. Her work is often compared to that of the old masters from the renaissance, yet despite van Zadelhoff’s use of the chiaroscuro effect, her images have a distinct contemporary feel to them. She captures the Zeitgeist with contemporary images that have a sense of stillness and are devoid of noise. They invite you to have a moment of deep inner reflection.
This books is published on the occasion of Danielle van Zadelhoff's solo exhibition at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo in Málaga from 30 June to 15 October 2017.
