Photography by Jenny Boot

Jenny Boot’s photography produces inscrutable, elusive images. They keep inviting the viewer to keep watching.

Going back to old masters, Boot develops in a style all of its own. In this she adds special objects to her models. For example, she uses a dead swan. Or she dresses a model in packaging material as if it had never been different. A message seeps through her artworks that is overwhelming. But this is not always visible in a short time. Although her art has a rough side, it always feels graceful and sometimes looks like a painting from the 16th century.

Jenny is represented internationally in Sweden, Rome, London and Miami. In the Netherlands, Sille Gallery always offers a broad overview of her photography.

Jenny Boot chose photography when she was 36. This gave her more than painting control. She likes to strongly portray the images she creates in her head. Jenny Boot graduated from the Amsterdam Photo Academy in 2012. Back then she was already recognized by JFK magazine as talented. In 2012, she was nominated as one of the 100 best up and coming talents in the Netherlands!
