from the ‘crossing roads’ series by isolde woudstra, 2012
utrecht-based photographer isolde woudstra manages to capture the eerie hyperrealism of daily life through the medium of photography –
taking what exists and twisting it in a way that reveals the peculiarity of human behaviour. woudstra does not interfere with the imagery through
digital manipulation – but specially curates a scene that could have been extracted deep from within the human psyche, denoting moments of weakness,
fragility, nostalgia and memory. often weaving her interests in cats, occult imagery, and the collective unconscious,
woudstra builds an interpretation of the quitodian inversed.
