Sofie van Dam (1983)
Imagine and fantasize. That is what you are compelled to do on seeing her work. For Sofie van Dam (1983, Bruchem) photography is not only about registering what you do and see, but also what you don't. It's about contemplating content and composition to ultimately bring your own thoughts into being in the photograph. Seen or not seen (as the case may be), she always attempts to conjure up a thrilling image that calls on the imagination of the viewer. Sofie graduated last year from Royal School of Arts in den Haag. In 2007 and 2008 she won several prizes in different categories of the Dutch Photo Academy Award.
