Dutch Scarlett Hooft Graafland graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in Hague in 1999. She then completed postgraduate studies in Belzalel, Jerusalem and a Master’s in sculpture at Parsons, New York. But, what really has caught the world’s eyes are not her sculptures but her photographs. Graafland is fascinated by remote, unusual and sometimes even inhospitable locations which she documents with her analogue camera. She then prints them straight from the negative and never uses Photoshop. Some places she has gone are Salar de Uyunu in the Bolivian Andes, the largest salt desert in the world and the Arctic plains of northern Canada where she travelled with the Inuit across the sea ice of Igloolik. She has also taken photographs of Southern China and the lava fields of Iceland.
