Statement

Jacquie Maria Wessels was born in Vlaardingen, the Netherlands, and presently lives and works in Amsterdam. She graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in photography in 1990, and studied social psychology at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam. Wessels has developed into an autonomous / documentary photographer who prefers to delve deeply into a subject over a long period.

Her subjects often serve as a framework for investigating the diverse social situations in which people find themselves. In these investigations she makes use of portraits, city scenes, landscapes and montages.

The work of Wessels has been exhibited at various locations in the Netherlands and abroad including Encontros da Imagem in Braga (PT), Surinaams Museum in Paramaribo (SR), Museum Het Valkhof in Nijmegen (NL), Museum IJsselstein (NL), Museum of Photography Thessaloniki (GR), PhotoBiennale Greece (GR), Noorderlicht Photo Festival Groningen (NL), New York Photo Festival (US), Gallery Carte Blanche San Francisco (US), Naarden Photo Festival (NL), Corcoran Gallery Washington (US), Gallery Cultural Speech Amsterdam (NL), Galerie Baudelaire Antwerp (BE), Municipal Museum Arnhem (NL), Amsterdam Municipal Archive (NL), the Historical Museum in Amsterdam (NL) and diverse (inter)national art fairs.
