Corriette Schoenaerts is a photographer working in an art, fashion and commercial context. Corriette chooses not to work in one signature style, instead she allows herself the freedom to focus on the subject, figuring formal congruencies will naturally follow. She creates strong guiding concepts for each project but is always open to chance accidents and spontaneity, thus providing an energy and fluidity that is integral to her photography. Another central theme of Corriette’s work is set construction large and small. This laborious process involves various materials and elements that when combined, create elaborate, multi-faceted photographs. Corriette Schoenaerts studied at the Sint Lukas School of Arts in Brussels (Belgium) and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Amsterdam (the Netherlands). She divides her time between Amsterdam, London and New York.
