Sjoukje van Gool grew up surrounded by nature: water and woods. The images, sensations and colours of these remain deeply ingrained in her being, and these colours are reflected in her work: the greens and browns of the woods; the blue shades of water and sky. As a photographer, she captures reality as she sees and feels it: a dreamt world that can be anywhere, any time. Visual poetry that speaks mainly about what isn't seen. Sjoukje graduated from the Amsterdam Photo Academy in 2012, winning third place in the Photo Academy Award. A year previously, her work had already been selected for GUP The Photo Academy Award.
