Wendelien Daan (Female, Eindhoven, 1965) Education: Academy of the Arts, Arnhem 1984 - 1989 (5 years full time Fashion Design: B.A in 1989)
Wendelien Daan is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
The technically perfect, austere pictures by Wendelien Daan (Eindhoven, 1965) do not betray the fact that she is self-educated. She studied fashion design at the ArtEZ Academy of the Arts in Arnhem -The Netherlands, but took a short cut to the perfect final result by taking up photography. Daan’s use of open and closed body language attracts attention and emphasizes feminine power. It is the combination of these elements– the love of storytelling combined with a clear visual language – that makes Wendelien Daan’s work stand out.
