Berber Theunissen

Berber Theunissen graduated cum laude from Fotoacademie, Amsterdam, in 2013. Working exclusively in medium format, Theunissen’s work revolves around issues of femininity and early motherhood. In projects documenting the incredibly strong bonds between her partner and herself as they look to navigate the intense heartbreak of a miscarriage, and capturing beautifully intimate investigations into the imperfections of the human form, Theunissen’s work offers an incredibly honest account of what it means to be a young mother. Berber is represented by Open Doors Gallery in London.
