TORCH opens the new year with a solo-exhibition of new work by Ellen Kooi. This Dutch photographer enjoys international recognition for her panoramic photographs of the relation between man and landscape. The protagonists in her pieces are often young people expressing signs of intense inner turmoil. In her work Ellen Kooi searches for the exact moment in which this inner struggle becomes external. A swarm of birds or the reflection of clouds in a body of water become symbolic for personal development and submerged emotions. In other pieces the landscape itself is the main actor of the composition and Ellen lets her models emphasize the natural dynamic of the location.
