Renata Dutrée 'Presence, a State of Mind'
Renata Dutrée, 59 years old, based in Voorschoten (Nl). She recently graduated from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam (December 2019). She specializes in staged photography and often uses social themes as the starting point. By using styling and props she constructs her images to make them more powerful. She is inspired by the great artists in painting and sculpture of the previous centuries, especially the Greek and Roman period, the Renaissance and the Golden Age. She looks for themes that have to do with hiding and /or revealing. Topics that are difficult to discuss in daily life, or that make one feel marginalized or stigmatized.
Showing her models in an idealized way, with respect for who they are and what they have lost. Transforming their pain and sorrow into beauty. With the past often still resonating in the photo. The beauty that she presents is often subtly accompanied by a threatening darkness.
Photo “Presence, a State of Mind”
“This photograph was part of a small series of Jude who has dark skin. What does being described as person of color mean? Does it mean you are only as much as your color? With this series I try to break the mould of representing people with dark skin in a purely macho way.”
