Alice de Kruijs is a contemporary and fine art photographer based in The Netherlands. Her work frequently touches the subject of identity and diversity and aims to go against the standard ideals and showcase stories through culture and different ethnic backgrounds, her work is a celebration of these differences in culture. As her way of life, she loves to conceptually and symbolically tell stories. Usually by showing a different perspective on personal daily life struggles and stories.

CURRENT EXHIBITION, Miami
He is Not the Subject, Not the Absolute – She is the Everything depicts portraits of women engaging—or not—with the viewer. The very choice of engagement, under the control of the female artist, is in itself taking a stance and controlling the gaze of the viewer, thus controlling the definition the viewer will affix to the female. Alice de Kruijs’ series, Family Matters, tells the story of one particular woman in her world: her grandmother; on the anniversary of her passing, Alice celebrates the full life she lived and her continued importance in her family with a series commemorating different stages in her life.
