Sabina van Gils-Tischler (b. 1978) is an autonomous photographer. In her photographs, she searches for a world you would not see without the images. She places objects, people, animals and landscapes in a new light, creating space between what we know and what we see. The images suggest another world and make the viewer think about what kind of world that might be.
Sometimes she intervenes with filters, pen scratches, paint and other techniques: anything to get even closer to the subject. Sometimes she lets the photo say it all by leaving it unedited.
Sabina’s photos tell stories. Sometimes she draws from her own experiences, other times they form new fairy tales and then they are accompanied by texts. But whether real or made-up, anything can happen in her photos. Like a dream with its own logic.
Sabina van Gils-Tischler graduated with honors from the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam in December 2022 – Get in touch.
