About Kirsten Swensen

Kirsten Swensen is an Eindhoven/Amsterdam based Photographer and Designer. 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 her surroundings. 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 way of meditation. In her photographic work 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. 

”Observing is a very important aspect within my work. I’m searching for ways in which observing can become a catalyst for bringing up emotion. Through their reactions, they give insight in rules of socially accepted behavior in our time and culture.”
