Wilma Wijnen

autonomous photographer

After working for almost 30 years in the insurance world, it was time for a career switch. Wilma started a travel organization in 2003, which mainly focused on the African continent. Her passion for photography arose in southern Africa and she became fascinated by the colors, views, flora and fauna of this diverse continent.

After four years, she once again changed course by giving direction to her passion and started vocational training at the photography school in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. She followed the photography training there, specializing in portrait photography and additionally she attended various workshops and master classes in portrait, landscape and architecture photography.

The challenge for her is to give light a leading role in her work. A large part of her work consists not only of actually taking the photo, but also editing the photo. She uses many photographic techniques for this. Editing the photos is like painting for her. Reality forms a base for the photos she creates.

Wilma Wijnen   is represented by Monteoliveto Gallery from  2022 . She will be exhibited in GHENT (Belgium) Art Fair.
