Cinta Janssen 'Dystopian Perspectives'
Cinta Janssen (1983) is an Amsterdam based Photographer & Art Director and graduated in 2018 from the University of Applied Photography. She is fascinated by stories of transformation and regeneration and seeks to create audacious images that have an unusual composition. Her aim is to emerge viewers in a different world by challenging their beliefs; inspire people to think about the reality we live in and how fluid it actually is (or can be). She also loves experimenting with various photography techniques like long exposure and movement (both digital and analog, to accentuate the process of transformation and create a challenging viewing experience. An important source of inspiration in her work is contemporary art, especially cubism and futurism artists like Kandinsky and Franz Mark. This work has sparked her love for lines, perspective and unusual angles. In addition, her work is also heavily influenced by statement artists like Banksy and pop-art icons Roy Liechtenstein and Andy Warhol. Key themes in her own work are contradiction, conformism, freedom, seduction, empowerment, sexuality and gender.
The ‘Perspectives’ series is a reflection on the subjectivity of reality and deals with perspectives on isolation, anarchy, change and shaping a new future. It is shot fully analog on a vintage Hasselblad 500CM, the film is hand developed and printed via classic darkroom processes. The tactility of this process helps to make sense of the new reality that the world is facing. Looking at the past, combining it with the present. Old techniques, in search of our roots, combined with new perspectives.
This image ’Dystopian Perspectives’ represents a fused reality. Darkroom printed analog film overlay, merging infrared and traditional black and white photography. The infrared nature shot depicts a view of an inverted nature, a reality that cannot be seen with the human eye. Combined with a woman in search of a new balance. Black isn’t always black and white isn’t always white anymore.
