Jacobine van Hellemond

After completing a master’s degree in history at the University of Amsterdam, Jacobine went on to study photography at the Royal Academy of Arts in the Hague. There, she discovered that moving images, film, was actually her preferred method to observe and share stories of human interaction.

She is known for her ability to make scripted situations with actors appear real. In her work you will find a variety of fleeting moments of intimacy between people. She always manages to capture the instant in which someone drops their mask and has a spontaneous reaction. What makes her films unique is this genuine vulnerability that shines through in the shots.
