Born in 1963 in The Netherlands. Lives and works in Amsterdam.

Desiree Dolron’s body of work combines traditional reportage photography with computer enhancement. By mixing these two methods, she achieves a powdery, glowing effect, thus giving her pictures the aspect of paintings. Her aesthetic is intricately linked to the Flemish school of primitive portrait painters, such as Petrus Christus and Rogier van der Weyden, and to the interior Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershoi. Dolron does not try to reproduce their work but rather adapts their aesthetic to her 21st century vision. Using the latest technologies, she manipulates the images and, like a painter, adds and changes elements within the frame. The outcomes are pure and flawless works, with a stillness and subtlety, which, even if the references seem obvious, are a revelation to the viewers.
