Sophie van der Perre

While I was looking for art schools in other countries because I might wanna do an exchange year or semester, I came across the photos of Sophie van der Perre and was captured immediately by the intimacy and atmosphere of her photographs. She is studying at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. She is only 22 and has had several exhibitions so far and did an internship with Ryan McGinley, one of my favourite photographers. Check out the photos on her website and Flickr (old account).


  1. you should definitely go to the hague. it's an amazing art academy! if you want to go to the netherlands you could also try these:

  2. beautiful raw images! so amazing! love this post :)

  3. I don't wanna go to netherlands necessarily. i'm open to any european country really...

  4. hello again. I forgot to ask this earlier - got distracted - why want to change schools? Not satisfied with your university's curriculm?
    I dont mean to be personal.

  7. excellent. thank you for sharing her work. america probably doesnt appeal for a transfer does it?

  8. Interesting work. Her pictures are more static than Ryan McGinley but the light is very similar.
    It would be great if you could develop: what do you like so much about her work? What inspires you?
    I would love to know.

  9. great pics, I wish I was the genius behind them.

  10. I wonder what cameras she uses to take her photos.
