A few years ago, Tjitske van Leeuwen made the decision to settle in the outskirts of Amsterdam. Here she lives in the midst of a landscape where water and land have been battling each other for ages. Just like in Zealand, the Dutch province where she grew up. In this manmade landscape, she experiences the spaciousness and the straight lines that influence her photography. She captures her fascination for this aesthetic rawness in still images. Tjitske’s inspiration also comes from little things that make life extraordinary, the sheer sensation of traveling, and interacting and co-creating with talented people.
