About Kirsten Swensen

Kirsten Swensen is an Eindhoven/Amsterdam based Photographer and Art Director whose practise is based upon creating visual identities, concepts and collaborative partnerships built on honesty and purpose within the creative field of art, culture and commerce. She obtained her Bachelor in Photography & Design in 2013. Later in 2017 she landed a TEDx talk about her project "The Beauty of Surrender". 

Her portraits are considered to be fragile and soft. They often contain moments of fleeting intimacy. In her work she explores the female body and tactility. Swensen is interested in finding the physical and psychological beauty in observing human body and mind. Like the tactility of a skin or the infinite patterns reflected in nature. In her more abstract work she likes to play with forms as a form of meditation. In her photographic work with people she wants to emphasize sensitivity and intimacy. She is always close to her subject. Te focus lies on the relationship between the artist and the model. The tangible presence. The nature of the actions she undertakes within her works result in her observing and questioning the human body, identity and vulnerability in relation to herself and her own generation.
