Annemarie Hoogwoud’s passion for landscape and photography started when she was 15. In those early years, Hoogwoud was mainly concerned with recording the design of the landscape. Gradually, she started to see more of the pure beauty of the mundane landscape and discovered its essence, its abstraction and its poetic sides. Hoogwoud portrays the beauty of the everyday landscape in an unusual way.
This creates an image that shows a different view of the landscape: an image that asks you to reflect. The story that the image tells the viewer then unfolds itself. Hoogwoud uses light, color and composition in such a way that emotion, softness and aesthetics coincide and the beauty of the mundane unfolds naturally. In a sometimes hectic, restless and harsh world, Hoogwoud hopes that her images inspire you to stand still, evoke an emotion and invite you to reflect on what you see.
