Christine Mooijer’s is a Netherlands-based photographer whose images center around the disproportionate representation of strong female leads in pop culture. Her cinematically-staged portraits present a dark and ominous atmosphere to viewers.
The warped and idealized worlds of the media and the American Dream instigated an undesired pressure and prompted a need for escape. Through this stigmatized idealization, Mooijer has opted to elevate not only her own vulnerability as an artist, but the imperfectness of reality and all that comes with it.
