Nanouk Prins

Nanouk Prins, Amersfoort (1976) recently graduated with honors at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam. In June 2021 she published a photobook called ‘Empty Forest’, about a young woman called Emma Hauck, who was admitted to a psychiatric hospital in Heidelberg in 1909.

'In my work there is a contrast between present, past, reality and illusion. It conveys a longing between what is and what could be, or what has been.
I use light, presence of shadows, absence of wind and long shutter speeds to draw viewers into another world. A world where time seems to have stopped. A world that doesn’t belong to anyone.'
