When I saw Aisha’s photographs, I was impressed by her slightly eccentric, stylized portraits.
Information about Aisha from her website:
‘Aisha Zeijpveld (1983) obtained her degree at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
Living in Amsterdam she works as freelancer for a variety of commercial magazines, while continuously pursuing her personal work.
Zeijpveld’s focus on people their nakedness and vulnerability yet simultaneously their potency and pride characterizes her photography.
She aims for the absurd, allowing her photographs to be positioned on the interface of reality and dream-world, while always maintaining their functionality and clarity.’

‘Aisha Zeijpveld is an Amsterdam-based photographer with an exciting portfolio of conceptual portraiture.
A balance of naked reality and peculiar surrealism is prevalent throughout her works that feature muted colour-blocked backdrops and interrupted and edited subjects.
We love the artist’s use of watery layers that subvert conventional posed shots and crumpled canvas textures that suggest a multiple printing and shooting process.
Liquid melting backdrops and photographic trickery create the illusion of morphing bodies.’
