Eva van Ooijen is a photographer who grew up in Zutphen, where she attended a Waldorf School. This is where the groundwork was laid for her aesthetic view on the world. In 2009 she got her photography degree from the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht.

In her work she plays with images and the stories they tell. By combining, collecting and bending images around she puts them in a new perspective. She looks at the modern world like an archaeologist examining reoccurring themes and trends. Bringing things to the surface that go unnoticed.
