Jessica van Dijk's work revolves around experiencing. She combines her love for nature and photography with her preferred medium and has started exhibiting and selling the stunning results.
Using an analytical, researching style, she approaches her subjects as a journalist rather than as a photographer. She wants to ask the difficult questions and feels it is important to keep confronting and challenging herself.
This led her to her search for the right way to incorporate human beings and their views into her work. Her images are therefore a reflection of herself and the world; a result of careful investigation.
A capturist tries to capture a moment or feeling that is the essence of that which he or she wants to convey.
Jessica van Dijk's work is a journey toward self-discovery during which she immerses herself in her natural environment. After researching and analyzing her project to the detail, she tries to capture an emotion by letting go all rational thought, losing herself in the very moment of the experience.
The results are carefully constructed portraits full of tension as she tries to make her inner feelings external in an almost surrealistic image - as if the women are rising up out of nature, hauntingly emotive and strong. The image captures the viewer's attention and lets them feel and reflect on the layers of meaning to be discovered in her photographic works.
