Wallflower by Nathalie Dekker

Nathalie Dekker


Nathalie Dekker (1976, The Hague) is a Dutch photographer, she lives and works in Overveen, near Haarlem and Amsterdam.

She has a fascination for translating words into images, in the purest simplest way. She jot down words that fascinate her. The words themselves trigger her imagination and she knows how to capture their essence in a contemporary way. The unique way she looks at them is both unexpected and accessible. Just with a little bit of difference and playfulness, she knows how to amaze you with her work.

“I have a fascination for translating words into images in the purest, simplest way. I jot down words that fascinate me. ‘Wallflower’ is an example. It has huge appeal to me and my imagination runs with it. The wallflower is known for being shy, quiet, reserved, pure and vulnerable, yet simultaneously strong and sparkling. In this project I look for more words that create wallflower and shows that in silence there is still something to say.

Nathalie graduated with honours from the Amsterdam Photo Academy in May 2018. She was selected as New Dutch Photography Talent 2019 by GUP and one of the 100 greatest emerging photographers of Europe, Fresh Eyes 2019 by GUP. The wallflower was shown at Fresh Eyes' book launch during the Photofestival Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles in France on 2 July 2019. The series Wallflower has been selected by Editors' pick of the open call of 2018 by Life Framer and she won 2nd place (Silver Star Award) ND Awards 2018.
