Corine Aalvanger ( Dalfsen, 1978 )

I am visual storyteller whom works with still and moving images, archives, texts and found footage. The visual outcome depends on how the story has to be told.

My work focuses on themes with a social context, related to time, place and people. I have a fascination for social phenomena, human identity and social issues, related to my personal background. I feel the need to investigate my surrounding and I have noticed that I always keep questions myself with regard to my surrounding. How does our personal background influence our identity? How can time influence traditions?

I want to research and tell these stories and with my work I want to reflect upon the society in which we live.

I am currently studying the Master of Photography at AKV St.Joost | Breda.
