Berber Theunissen

I, Berber Theunissen (1989), focus my camera on things that affect me personally. Things that I love, but also things that make me feel vulnerable. I capture the situations I have little grasp of. Through photography, I create my own hold fast to view my life in a more objective way. This approach is placed directly next to my research and curiosity into ‘the other’. My photographs are reflections of the memories in my mind. I take photographs because I want to preserve what is otherwise lost forever; time.
