Sometimes, collaborations are quite straightforward. Photographer Kaat Stieber had seen my work and wanted me to write her an artist statement, in English. We talked about her pieces, her ideals and how it is to work mostly with children. After the interview, I wrote Kaat a first draft, she changed a few words and sentences and I rewrote and edited. Et voilà! An artist statement.
Kaat Stieber is a fine art photographer who weaves the worlds of surrealism and noble Dutch art into her images. Mixing her broad set of creative skills with an internationally acclaimed background in theatre and costume design, her photos are assembled with vast craftmanship. Kaat’s works of art resemble tableaus from the Dutch Golden Age, a rich realm of paintings and a constant source of identification. An admiration of surrealists adds to the scene.
