2001-2007 Ba Photography, Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht

“Isolde Woudstra’s work is good. Spoon bending daily-life with the aid of her lens, and with the constant appearance of her fashion, portrait and music photography already published in several magazines, Woudstra shines through the latent relatable darkness of her autonomous vision, where she aims to portray the state of being in-between thoughts.”
-Dazed & Confused

“Photographer Isolde Woudstra manages to capture the eerie hyperrealism of daily life through the medium of photography – taking what exists and twisting it in a way that reveals the peculiarity of human behaviour. Woudstra does not interfere with the imagery through digital manipulation – but specially curates a scene that could have been extracted deep from within the human psyche, denoting moments of weakness, fragility, nostalgia and memory. Often weaving her interests in cats, occult imagery, and the collective unconscious, Woudstra builds an interpretation of the quitodian inversed.”
