Hanneke van Leeuwen (b.1984) is a multimedia visual storyteller based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
It is a vulnerable moment. Taking a photo is a search between 2 people, both individually. It is part of a conversation and almost becomes a ritual. A dialogue, a research to our place in the world. Culture and rituals are passed on from one generation to the next, through the process of socialisation. Women all over the world, has become Van Leeuwen's main subject. What binds us? The layers of our history that formed us, will be given to our future. It is this continuous search that makes us discover ourselves.
