An Image A Week: Wijnanda Deroo

Dutch photographer Wijnanda Deroo's work depicts the hushed melancholy of commonplace interiors found in hotels, cafes, courtyards and factories. Despite the lack of people present in Deroo's work there exists a tangible presence of human experience and activity, manifested in the subtle clues left behind from a once vibrant history. Her alluring use of color and composition invites the viewer into these spaces with emotive power, reinforcing that beauty can be found in the least likely of places.

Wijnanda Deroo's photographs were recently feature in Issue 34 of Blindspot Magazine.
