Jorinde Beijerling (NL, 1989).
Based in Amsterdam.

My work revolves around the imagination, adaptability and resilience of people. We don’t let life happen to us, but shape the world according to our needs. Where we can’t do that, we use our imagination. I think we should celebrate these qualities. They enable us to survive the non-ideal situations in life.

As a photographer, I am intrigued by the possibilities that installations and different publication forms offer to tell stories. I use both my own photographs and found footage. Some of these images are staged or curated, but always inspired by the situations and people I encounter in real life.
