The work of photographer and engineer Lizette Schaap (1987) presents an aesthetic that has been described as wonderfully simplistic, abstract, graphic and surreal. Lizette photographs in a contemporary manner, but adds depth to her images by effectively communicating a story. Lizette is interested in themes such as slowing down, sustainability, and consumption.
Lizette Schaap graduated in December 2015 from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam with her 3P’s project; a self-published book and a successful group exhibition at the Amsterdam Beurs van Berlage.
“In our society I get the feeling that we have to constantly run, that we have to live for the future instead of the here and now. The speed of living and the overconsumption harm both us and other people, and moreover, our planet. And this mainly occurs in places that do not consume on the same scale as we do. My aim is to live in awareness in the present, to deal with the rush and to find more quietness in my life. I therefore maintain the sustainability principle of the 3P’s: an equilibrium between people, planet and profit”.www.lizetteschaap.com/
