I hold my breath, close my eyes, yet I’m observing.
Trying to connect to it’s beauty instead of reality.”


Sjoukje van Gool (1982) grew up in the Netherlands, surrounded by nature: water and woods. The images, sensations and colours of these remain deeply ingrained in her being, and these colours are reflected in her work: the greens and browns of the woods; the blue shades of water and sky.

As a photographer, she captures reality as she sees and feels it: a dreamt world that can be anywhere, any time. Visual poetry that speaks mainly about what isn’t seen.
