Elspeth Diederix

The Netherlands, Amsterdam Stigter van Doesburg

The world of Elspeth Diederix (KE, 1972) is endlessly rich. Bringing these riches to light, the beauty of nature andeveryday ‘things’, lies at the core of her work. She approaches a plastic bag with the same fascination as a vase of flowers or a mountain ridge. Through her photography, Diederix is looking for the moment in which everyday phenomenon lose their ordinary appearance, the moment in which they show their true selves. She shakes us out of our worn and preconditioned ways of perceiving and exposes the world’s true appearance: sublime, full of surprises, poetry, and beauty.
