"This image is part of the series 'Naked Truce’, shot in Northern Ireland in 2019. Originally travelling to Belfast, I wanted to escape the tensions of the city. I embarked on multiple journeys to the countryside of Northern Ireland - and into my subconscious. I took portraits of my friends on different spots along the mystical, rough coast of Northern Ireland, intrigued by the otherworldly magic of the scenery and the contrast between soft skin and the harsh landscape. Body parts and nature began to intertwine in impossible ways, pulling me into their surreal world. It was as if they were trying to re-negotiate their place within the image, between each other and between reality and imagination."


Dora Lionstone is a visual artist and photographer who graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2020 with a BA in Photography and has previously worked as a Software Engineer in Germany with an Msc in Media Informatics. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally, e.g. at FOAM and MIYOTA PHOTO. She is a FRESH EYES Talent 2021, Runner-Up of the OD Photo Prize 2022 and recipient of the Mondriaan Artist Start Grant in 2021. She is the co-founder of SPROUT PUBLISH and based in Amsterdam, NL.


Influenced by her background in software engineering, Dora Lionstone sees the image as a system that can be cracked, taken apart and reassembled differently. This continuous (re-)construction of reality is often explored by the artist’s use of collages and other image transformations. By using multiple methods and points of view, she aims to extend the boundaries of the rigid binary world, merging fact and fiction, science and art.
