Working intuitively, and observing her chosen territory closely, self-taught photographer Sarah van Rij (1990, the Netherlands) documents fleeting fragments of life on the street and still life, sometimes using the collage technique. Van Rij’s images convey a clear visual signature defined by a number of recurring elements, including careful framing; experiments with perspective; touches of vivid colour; and traces of human forms. Her work draws influences from various artistic fields – from painting to cinema – whilst building upon rich and longstanding photographic traditions for capturing the subtle beauty found in the everyday. Whilst van Rij’s images are inherently contemporary (a number of photographs are shot on the artist's iPhone), it is often difficult to place them in time: with the occasional exception, her subject matter is largely devoid of any temporal indicators, lending her work an ageless feeling and evoking nostalgia for times gone by.

Sarah van Rij is a professional photographer based in both Amsterdam and Paris. She makes free work but also collaborates in projects for, among others, The New York Times, The Atlantic, Vogue, The New Yorker, and sometimes for fashion brands like Hermès, Jacquemus, Louis Vuitton & Tod’s.
In 2019 Sarah van Rij was responsible for a set of First Editions; an affordable set of works that was for sale at Foam Editions for a period of two months. 

The print will be carefully wrapped and send as an insured package. You will receive an e-mail with a Track & Trace code when the package is on its way. A framed copy is often on display at Foam Editions, the gallery on the third floor of Foam Fotografiemuseum.
