Anna den Drijver (The Hague, 1975) lives and works in Amsterdam. After a career in marketing, she studied at the Fotoacademie Amsterdam, from which she graduated in 2013. In 2016 she self-published her first book, Enchanted Blossom, which De Volkskrant deemed one of the 15 best photobooks of that year. Den Drijver’s work has been published in various newspapers and magazines and shown at festivals and art fairs in the Netherlands and abroad.
In her artistic practice, Den Drijver focuses, partly influenced by her past career in marketing, on how image culture shapes our relationships to the world around us. Den Drijver tries to come to grips with the ever-accelerating world of digital image circulation and consumption by combining her own contemplative photographs with adaptations of images from the public domain. She questions whether quiet reflection is still possible given the current inflation of the image and information. Can one still process information without jostling one’s identity? What do authorship and (intellectual) property mean in the context of an overcharged information economy?
Because of the vast amounts of information made available to us through the internet and other media, a perhaps false sense of urgency and immediacy arises. Information is often distributed and consumed in such an explosive and unfiltered manner, making it nearly impossible to maintain distance and make independent judgments. Is there still room in this hypermedial world for the development of something like authentic selfhood?
