Vivian Keulards is a Dutch conceptual portrait photographer. She graduated in 2009 from the Fotoacademie Amsterdam. Her fascination for images and photography started earlier though. During her Communication Science studies at the KUN (University of Nijmegen, master’s degree in 1995) she mainly focused on visual culture and imaging; she also loved to print in the darkroom.
Vivian’s portrait series are often created over a longer period of time and are narrative (conceptual). Children, adolescents and vulnerable groups are recurring subjects in her photography. Her series can be documentary or based on fine-art. Therefore, her work is shown on different platforms like photo festivals, galleries, newspapers and magazines. Her portraits have been published, exhibited and rewarded internationally and are part of public and private collections.
The book To Hans, is published by Schilt Publishing and available in English and Dutch edition. The book will be presented at the opening.
