BIO


Alice de Kruijs is a fine-art photographer based in Arnhem, The Netherlands. She frequently touches the subject of identity and diversity and aims to go against the standard ideals and showcase stories through culture and different ethnic backgrounds, her work is a celebration of these differences in culture. As her way of life, she loves to conceptually and symbolically tell stories. Usually by showing a different perspective on personal daily life struggles. 

Born in 1981 in the east of The Netherlands she grew up in an artistic family. Nevertheless her true artistic passion in photography started in her late twenties. After graduating from Internation Fashion Design (New Delhi & Amsterdam) and  later on from Applied Photography Design (Fotovakschool) with a specialisation in Fine-art portraits, she dedicated her life to conceptual photography. In her early thirties she gradually moved to fine-art photography in combination with story telling photography.

Her work have been exhibited in different galleries around the world like Menier Gallery London, Gehsucht Gallery Rotterdam, Life Framer gallery in  Zurich Switserland and PH21 Gallery in Budapest. In 2017 she's been named New Dutch Photography talent. From 2017 onwards her work has been featured in L'oeil de la Photographie, Dodho Magazine, Lenscuture, PHMuseum, Lense Magazine and so fort.

Pearl

Xueli is 15 year old teenager and was born with Albinism in China (Xuchang). Albinism is an inherited genetic condition that reduces the amount of melanin pigment formed in the skin, hair and/or eyes. Albinism occurs in all racial and ethnic groups throughout the world. Xueli is visually impaired, can only see 10%, has wobbly eyes and is very sensitive to light. When she was approx. 8 months old she was brought to an orphanage most probably due to her albinism. In China it is believed albinism brings bad luck to the family. At the age of 3 she was adopted and now lives in The Netherlands. She is very aware of her unique beauty and through her deversity she fights for equal right for people with albinism all around the world. 
For this portrait I have put charcoal powder on her face which embodies the contradiction and beauty at the same time of black & White.
