Radar Portfolio: Isolde Woudstra

Describing her work as a horse galloping on a tomato, Dutch photographer Isolde Woudstra aims to create images that seem just as possible as unlikely.

Darkly humorous and slightly surreal, Isolde Woudstra’s photographs seem to capture the state of being in-between thoughts. Taking inspiration from surrealism and occult imagery, she portrays the peculiarities of human behaviour and the queerness of everyday life. The result is both beautiful and uncanny, both eerie and fascinating.

Holding a Bachelor’s degree in Photography from Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Utrecht, Isolde Woudstra’s work has been featured in magazines such as Dazed & Confused, Vice, Glamcult, and Subbacultcha!, as well as in a number of exhibitions and fairs. 

– I’m interested in creating images that seem just as possible as unlikely, Isolde says about her work. That moment when everything seems more natural but also confusing at the same time. It’s about that hint of mystery.
