THEME #23

CHANGE

Application overview

2021MAY

Hellen van Meene

From the tremendous developments in our society to the smallest mood swings, our world is full of “CHANGES”. As we adapt ourselves to the ever-shifting daily lives, we have always overcome the hardships on our paths; Photography has recorded such challenges and changes present at every step of our lives. At the same time, there are also images that are produced as we reflect on what “CHANGE” means. Visualize the evidence of change or omen, ambiguous and abstract, through photography. This may be your chance to look back at the “CHANGE” you’ve experienced and the traces of our lives.
[Submission Period] from May 11 to July 11

JUDGE

Hellen van Meene
(Photographer)

Born in 1972, Alkmaar, the Netherlands. She studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam. Over the last twenty years, Hellen van Meene has produced a complex body of work, offering a contemporary take on photographic portraiture. Characterized by her exquisite use of light, formal elegance, and palpable psychological tension, her depictions of girls and boys on the cusp of adulthood demonstrate a clear aesthetic lineage to seventeenth-century Dutch painting. Van Meene captures the intimacy in the photographer/subject relationship, bringing out a sense of honesty and vulnerability from within her models and highlighting the beauty of imperfection. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is in the collections of major museums around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. She has five monographs on her name including “Portraits” (Aperture, 2004) “Japan Series,” “New Work” and “Tout va disparaître.”
