Hi! I’m located in the Netherlands (Utrecht / Amsterdam area)  and did a Ba Photography at the HKU.

Besides my work as a freelance photographer I also teach photography at the Volksuniversiteit Utrecht. 

Do you have a question about the use of images, are you interested in working together or just want to say hi? Drop me a line and I'll get back to you!

“Spoon bending daily-life with the aid of her lens, Woudstra shines through the latent relatable darkness of her autonomous vision."

- Dazed & Confused
“Isolde Woudstra manages to capture the eerie hyperrealism of daily life through the medium of photography – taking what exists and twisting it in a way that reveals the peculiarity of human behaviour. Woudstra does not interfere with the imagery through digital manipulation – but specially curates a scene that could have been extracted deep from within the human psyche.”

- Designboom
"Isolde Woudstra finds images that carry a symbolic weight, the outer markers of inner chaos, where loneliness pervades."

“Isolde Woudstra skillfully captures the mood and thoughts of people in a descriptive manner, while always acknowledging their humanity and emotions. She manages to strike a balance and avoids becoming overly subjective.” 

- Der Greif
