ABOUT

My name is Loretta Monique Mulders (1993, NL).

I am a photographer who graduated from The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. 

When I close my eyes and I think about my childhood, I see an army of women. For as long as I remember femininity has ruled the world around me. Growing up in non-conformist atmospheres, I have always been trying to understand what it takes for something to be considered normal and when does something become odd. Working alongside the topics of feminism, masculinity and mental health my projects often start as an investigation into the boundaries of accepted and established beliefs. With the work I make I aim to offer a different perspective rather than to give an answer. Through portraiture and still lives I create visual narratives that are balancing on a fine line between reality and fiction. In this way I create worlds that may not exist, but feel safe to believe in.
