Navigating us into an array of places throughout China, Bolivia, northern Canada and Iceland, Scarlett Hooft Graafland describes the pristine beauty of nature through her photographs. She carefully chooses each location to evoke notions of spirituality: reflection, peace and serenity.
Subtle and cleverly executed, Graafland combines performance, installation and photography into one flawless composition. I am completely blown away by her ability to accentuate (as well as manipulate) the charming aspects of "emptiness." Nonetheless, as you can see in many of her images, she understands how to work with extreme climate situations within each the location. She highlights miniscule details that, one way or another, acts as a significant centerpiece or a unique characteristic that attracts the naked eye.
Scarlett Hooft Graafland is currently exhibiting at Museum Huis Voor Photographie in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She is represented by Michael Hoppen Contemporary Art, London and Vous Etes Ici, Amsterdam.
