Lonneke van der Palen takes photographs using lighting that is reminiscent of a setting sun. In this way, she lures the viewer into an uncanny world. Bright pink doors in the country of the Hopi people in Utah. The back door of a restaurant in a dark alley in Seoul. A lonely shopping cart in the middle of an empty parking lot. Or a plastic bag hanging from a car in Cape Town. By specializing in revealing the vivid aesthetics of the most mundane, these objects become a source of renewed astonishment. While straying from the highlighted route, Lonneke sees a mirage of found objects waiting to be photographed.
