SABRINA VAN DEN HEUVEL
PHOTOGRAPHY AS A TOTAL CONCEPT
Sabrina van den Heuvel is attracted to classic black and white photography, music and fashion.
In her photography she combines these three elements with flair and passion.
Her work is characterized by narrative and dynamic images.
The often raw style shows moments of intensity with movement and strong contrasts. With emotional themes such as ecstasy, happiness and desire, Sabrina wants to merge visual art, fashion and poetry into a photographic total concept.
In the fall of 2017, Sabrina worked as an “artist in residence” in Florence on the series “Corpus Dei”. Inspired by nature and classical antiquity, she photographs model Jacopo picked off the street. He plays the lead in the photo series and for the photographer embodies the “Corpus Dei” and her fascination with anatomy and melancholy. In a modern way, she brings Caravaggio’s claire-obscure to life in combination with pure and serene landscapes, reflecting Michelangelo’s glorification of the land.
In 2008 Sabrina van den Heuvel graduated from the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in The Hague. She has made striking portraits of singer Peter Doherty and actress Victoria Koblenko and is inspired by Herman Brood, Vaslav Nijinsky, Yves Saint Laurent and Arthur Rimbaud. Her autonomous work has been presented in the Fotomuseum The Hague and the University Institute for Art History in Florence. Her work has also been shown at art fairs such as PAN Amsterdam, the New York Photo Festival, KunstRAI and Fotofever Brussels. The series “Corpus Dei” has since been published as a book by publishing house Lecturis.
