    Anna den Drijver

In 'InwardOut' I am questioning to what extent anyone is still able
- in a world so full of external influences due to the transparency
of internet and media - to be him or herself and to develop as
authentic as possible?

Anna den Drijver , born in The Hague (Netherlands) in 1975 , studied at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam.

Her work is about growing up and the quest for identity . The underlying struggles that will accompany them, she attempts to expose. The contrast between the hidden inner world and visible outer world plays an important role, as does the subconscious .

The subconscious Anna attempts to portray in her work. Therefore, her images are sometimes dreamy, others are alienating and others associative. Anna works in an investigative way in order to create her images in an organic way. She uses both analog and digital techniques .
