Self portrait Daantje Bons 2016
The work of Daantje shows femininity in it’s most honest and vulnerable form. Learned patterns, both physically and mentally, serve as her inspiration. By focusing the camera on herself, she examines her own femininity. Intuition has an important role in her work, guided by conflicting feelings she seeks answers in her photographs. Many of her subjects are perceived as inaccessible. Through humor and provocation she is able to circumvent this inaccessibility, which opens up the conversation. Feminism plays an important role in the work of Daantje, by photographing from the heart and not apologizing for it she enforces to be heard.
