Danielle van Zadelhoff is an incredibly gifted photo artist. She was born in Amsterdam and now she lives in Belgian town Antwerp. Danielle’s story of becoming a photographer is remarkable. Her father was fond of painting and sculpturing, so Danielle grew up in the atmosphere of creativity. She learned how to express herself in this or that kind of art. Besides, her family library was full of books devoted to art and history. Danielle fell in love with Renaissance artists, and we can see their influence in her works now. The most remarkable Renaissance feature of Danielle’s photo portraits is a famous Claire-obscure technique when the background is dark and model’s face is illuminated by the front light.
Danielle admits that religion influenced on her style greatly. She was a pupil of Protestant school and she communicated with her Catholic grandmother a lot. Danielle’s favorite Renaissance art is also permeated with religious motives. That’s why her photo portraits are full of inner inspiration and sometimes mysticism. These photos strongly remind seventeenth century oil portraits. Danielle says that making photo portraits she tries to show pure human emotions.
