Ellen Kooi


Yesterday, it was the last day of an Ellen Kooi exhibition that took place near my hometown. However, one of the worst storms of the year and the one hour train distance restrained me from going. Which is a pity, because I've always admired the mistery and whim surrounding her work.


Kooi pics are taken and inspired by the Netherlands, where she was born. Although kids, women and human relationships, in general are also an important part of her photography.


Her signature style is easily recognized, but each shot is very different from the next, and has its own alma.



Song: Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

What haunting photographs. I'm not sure where the pictures were actually taken, but the landscapes are so unfamiliar to me being from California and I absolutely love them. Thank you for sharing!
