Rembrandt’s light in Danielle van Zadelhoff’s photos
If you have the chance, visit the Press Museum in Amsterdam to view Danielle van Zadelhoff’s photos.
An exhibition of her work will be held there one week only, from 23 October to 29 October. If that window is a little bit too narrow for you, don’t despair. Van Zadelhoff regularly posts her photos to her Facebook account.
Danielle van Zadelhoff is a self-taught photographer. She did a short stint at a photography school, but according to Fotografie magazine (PDF here) her teachers thought she was so good, there wasn’t much they could teach her. In 2006 she and her husband bought a mansion called Spokenhof (lit. ‘garden of ghosts’) in Boechout, Belgium, a renaissance castle that doubles as a studio for her renaissance-like portraits.
