Biography

Annemarie Spilker (born 1980, The Netherlands) is a Dutch fine-art photographer best known for her self-portraits and landscapes. She graduated cum laude from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam in 2003 with an impressive series of self-portraits titled "Searching to fill the emptiness...".

Since then she has been working on the development of her own style in her fields, landscapes and self-portraits. Her style is best described as penetrating self-portraits with an uncomfortable and confronting atmosphere, in which she searches for the hidden places in her own feelings. The landscapes show an unprecedented silence and timelessness that appear almost unreal. In 2010 Annemarie became known internationally following a nomination at the prestigious Black and White Spider Awards. Since that day many awards and (international) exhibitions followed. The work of Annemarie is now part of (private) art collections all over the world.

In 2012 Annemarie started the art collaboration Bulbfiction. Bulbfiction is a collaboration of 5 artists, all working in their own fields of art and with their own styles but all with the same theme, The Flower District. Annemarie currently lives and works in Bergschenhoek, The Netherlands.
