Fascinated by different perspectives on beauty through the ages, Fine Art Photographer Isabelle van Zeijl
explores the aesthetics and techniques of the past to invent a contemporary practice.
Boundaries fade as she blends the skills and idiom of the Old Masters with present-day technologies to create striking portraits. Evoking individual alienation and our collective memory, her works are powerful, invocative and seductive. By framing her own appearance within the broader context of the classical canon Van Zeijl reveals the intrinsic tie between subjectivity and beauty. Digitally composing her photographs like a painter, her work never compromises on authenticity. Even though she is both creator, object and subject, her fine art photography reaches beyond the genre of self-portraiture, creating a universal and timeless vision of woman. With each portrait Van Zeijl gets closer to her own personal truth, all the while citing an all-embracing meaning of beauty that transcends time and age. Van Zeijl exhibits widely in New York, LA, Miami, London, Hong Kong and The Netherlands.
