Annemarie Hoogwoud (1962), born and raised in Amsterdam, lives and works in the north of the country, in Friesland. She is 15 years old when her neighbour takes her into his world of landscape photography. Since then, the camera has not left her life.
After completing her education at the Dutch Fotovakschool in Apeldoorn in the late 1990s, she followed various in-depth courses in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
In those early years she is mainly concerned with photographing the landscape. Gradually that started to change and she started shooting what touches her, using the landscape as a means of expressing how she looks and feels, in a more abstract way.
In 2018 she published her book The Quest – a photographic journey based on the novel Night train to Lisbon.
Annemarie creates independent work, works on commission, gives lectures, organizes workshops and exhibits in galleries.
