"We don’t see things as they are.. we see things as we are. Everyone plays the main character in their own life. Therefor it is the highest level of intelligence to step out of your own film and see the world through someone else's eyes. Empathy is, I think, the highest level of intelligence."


Nanda Hagenaars (b. 1988) is a photographer who aims to translate her feelings and emotions into images. Her work can be described as poetical, intuitive, and emotional. The concept of time and timelessness provoked Nanda to photograph in black and white.


To Nanda, the camera is more than just a tool. It's a symbol of transformation. It helped her see life in new ways, just as looking through its lens showed her fresh perspectives. She believes in using photography as a way to grow and discover herself. "It's not always easy to see things differently, but I push myself to do it," she says. This philosophy shows up in her art. She doesn't just see water; she sees its reflection too. This way of seeing extends to everything she captures. With a sharp focus and some sweaty hands, she searches for new compositions. Realizing that you can look at something and see a whole new side empowers her to face challenges in life with the same open mindset.


For Nanda, photography didn’t feel like a choice – it was her calling. It's her way of sharing how she sees the world and who she is. She plays with light and shadow, creating a dance that's both rhythmic as melancholic. Through her work, she hopes to inspire others to share their emotions through art. She's a firm believer that everyone has an inner artist who can create and heal by looking at the world, or themselves, with fresh eyes.


Nanda pours a piece of herself into her work, forging connections with people and the wisdom of life. It's like a game – an exciting journey of discovery. Through this connection, her photography becomes a way to explore her own identity and communicate with the world around her, painting a vivid picture of emotions and experiences.
