Author: Equipped with her Pentax 6x7, Berber Theunissen (Netherlands, 1989) shoots portraits, still lives and landscapes. She uses photography to create some kind of safeguard. Berber documents the situations she has little grasp of. She captures the moments, emotions and memories in which these intense emotional situations were present or revolving around her. She reflect upon her own struggles by looking how her friends and people who surround her cope with the same situations and emotions. For Berber photography is a tool to look at her own life in an objective way.
Berber was born in a small village in The Netherlands. When she was 18, she packed her bags and moved to Amsterdam. Where she graduated Cum Laude from the Photo Academy. After eight years surrounded by the chaotic city life, she really started missing the woods, the quiet and the smells of nature. January 1st of 2015 she moved back to the dutch countryside, the surrounding that inspires her most.
