'The fragile, solitary feeling attracted me especially in the work of Corbijn. I often play with adolescence and youth and the associated fears and insecurities in my work. A dreamy woman in a deserted street in Amsterdam.' - Jolijn Snijders

Jolijn Snijders
Together with fashion designer Claes Iversen, Jolijn created Lonerism, 2012, based on a photograph by renowned Dutch photographer, Anton Corbijn. 'Christy Turlington, Dublin' was the inspiration for her image, which is on display at &Foam, Vijzelstraat 78, until 17 March 2013.

After graduating Art Academy Jolijn Snijders worked in advertising for a year, then started a career as a photographer. At a young age she created I Love Fake, an independent digital magazine, for which she shot a lot of editorials, building a network of collaborators and earning experience and visibility. The magazine recently published its first issue in print, widely distributed all over the world.
