Fleur van Dodewaard (b. 1983, The Netherlands). Fleur studied Theatre at the University of Amsterdam and Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague before enrolling in the Photography course at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, where she graduated in 2010. Fleur lives and works in The Netherlands. Her work consists of a series of assemblages, still-lifes shot in the studio that explore the evocative nature of geometry and color. Referencing art historial terms such as the nude and landscape, her photographs become a tool for the deconstruction of the image plane and a mirror for which to reflect back upon the photographer and the medium of photography itself.
