ISABELLE PATEER (°1980 NL)
Isabelle doesn't only show the concrete setting but also the emotional world behind it which is less tangible - THE ART COUCH
Specialised in environmental portraiture and documentary projects I am working as an independent (art)photographer for magazines, companies and organisations worldwide. I am a guest lecturer on documentary photography and exhibit and sell my (documentary) artwork in an International gallery and museum context.
Clients I am proud to cooperate with: The New York Times, Financial Times, De Standaard, Bio Planet, RDH Diamonds, Matexi, WWF, Orde van Architecten, Lannoo publishing, Consensio, Foodservice Network Europe, G4S, Grünenthal, OneWorld Magazine, Caritas, Fedasil and others.
Beside commissioned work I am focusing on personal documentary and fine art projects. My UNSETTLED project has been awarded and exhibited worldwide in London, Brussels, Dublin, Barcelona, Hamburg, Berlin, Toulouse, Arles, Copenhagen, Cologne, Lodz, Tbilisi, Krasnodar, Daegu and others.
Photography is my way of being connected to the world and investigating in- and questioning our current society. Meeting people, exploring places and transforming these encounters in a personal visual narrative is my life challenge.
My aim is to create meaningful imagery which goes beyond a pure visual experience, but generates also insight and is inviting for a personal interpretation. The style of my work is natural, stylish but simple; with a focus on light and color and the emotion these elements can generate through imagery.
