Kirsten Thys van den Audenaerde

Belgium Born in: 1968

Kirsten Thys van den Audenaerde is a self-taught freelance photographer, based in Brussels.


Early on in her career, she discovered a fascination with art nude photography and since then the human body in its purest form has played a mayor role throughout her work.


In 2016, after becoming increasingly frustrated with digital perfection, an impulse buy of The Impossible Project's I-1 camera changed her life. Never having heard of TIP before, she describes making that first Polaroid image as an instant love affair. Within weeks she had acquired several old Polaroid cameras and before she new it, she switched to analogue photography, quickly realizing that it offered her everything she had been missing in her digital work. Capturing a unique moment exactly as it is, has brought back the feeling of authenticity she had lost in her previous work. She especially likes to work with expired film, captivated by its perfect imperfections.


She explores the American landscape, the utterly destruction of the American dream and the wonders of the naked body put into forgotten, lost spaces like Bombay Beach or the wide landscapes of the American West. Young women posing for her and the viewer follows their lives with wonder.
