Claudia den Boer's work stems from a fascination with the concept of ‘place’ and moves between landscapes and the habited world. Photography is a means to explore and examine how she relates to places and spaces. Anchors is her most recent long-term personal project made into a photo book. She was very happy to present it on two occasions during the international photo festival Breda Photo 2016 and to be part of the Experimental Book Platform-talk by Punto de Fuga during Paris Photo 2016. This spring the book will be exhibited at Photo festival Naarden 2017. While making Anchors she participated in two desert artist-in-residencies; New Mexico, USA (2013) and the Sahara, MA (2015). Working periods allow her to focus and submerge in what she considers to be my slow working process. The summer of 2016 she was selected to participate in ISSP (LV), a great experience all together. Her next working period will be at International Art Residency Can Serrat (ES) on a partial grant. Holding a bachelor in photography, she also studied visual arts and later got an additional teachers degree. Next to working freelance as a photography teacher she is interested in collaborating in multidisciplinary projects. In the past I worked with architectural firm Ontwerplab on research project and publication Verborgen Stad (Hidden City). More recently she started collaborating with choreographer Katja Grässli (NL/CH) on a long-term project. It involves the exploration of the topic of silence by making a dance piece; a crossover between dance, sign language and photography.
