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 see, but 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 (as the case may be), she always attempts to conjure up a thrilling image that calls on the imagination of the viewer. Sofie graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts in Den Hague.
