Annejet Brandsma (1995)

I studied Crossmedia Design at AKI Artez, Enschede (NL)  and graduated Cum Laude in 2017 with the project ‘Good People’.

For me, photography is a tool to overcome hurdles. To capture people in small moments who are dealing with social changes. I ask you, the viewer, to stop and think about social structures. I show you the power of the image and offer nuance in the fleeting visual culture of today.

I am part of Studio Polat since 2017. A foundation that fosters and promotes social cohesion by building bridges between different cultures, creative disciplines and platforms. Together with other creatives we initiate, create, produce and expands visual stories.
