I was first inspired by Annemarieke van Drimmelen's photography when I saw the beautiful images of Alex James and Irina Lazareanu for Aubin & Wills Spring 2012 collection. Just like her other photographs, they are a cross between fashion and portrait photography where an intimate moment is captured. Some of her images are full of life and movement; some give the sense of calmness and serenity.
The dutch photographer started off working as a successful model, and has used this experience to her advantage. For example, she has produced two bodies of work that look beyond the immaculate glossy magazine models, and instead focus on their lives outside their career. She discovered that "Bringing the camera to their personal life took away the role that they knew and opened up something else.”
Magazines such as Vogue, Glamour and Marie Claire have published Van Drimmelen's photography since she began shooting in 2005. I could also imagine her photographs working perfectly for Lula magazine, so I'm sure it's just a matter of time before Leith Clark snaps her up!
