Sabine Woudenberg (1997/NL) is a contemporary artist working within the photography medium. Sabine is researching new methods of photography. With this, she combines experimental and conceptual ways of working in an attempt to create for herself a new form of photography and seeing, which she applies in storytelling and creating interpretive/surrealistic images.

Artist Stament

I work interpretively, leaving room to appropriate it. Which means that within my work I like to offer the viewer a space to gain more insight about themselves and their own emotions. It makes the viewer part of the work, but the work also becomes a part of them. This is also why the range of subjects and topics I tend to tackle is quite divergent.

 One theme that is often reoccurring is psychological in origin, like the passing of time and acceptance of death. While sometimes hard to put into concrete words, we all experience a wide range of emotions. This is something I visually ‘translate’ into images, creating spaces to give these feelings a place to live and grow. My most recent ongoing project “To Dream” is a very strong example of this.


I shape these spaces by visualizing my own fictive worlds, translating them into surreal photography and mixed media. In order to incorporate my own sensory and emotional experiences into images I rely on my own intuition. I start creating from within, resulting in a process that feels like a performative act.
