"Dahlia is a flower. Maybe a car. Definitely a mother. In this project I found a way to reclaim what has been hijacked by the masculine kingdom. Women and cars. Subjects of advertisement, objects of home. By focusing on both their levels of intimacy and anonymity, I realized cars are as personal and universal as the female body. Skin and metal - covering frames to protect our insides from the outside."
Vera van Dam

After her studies at the University of Amsterdam she fully committed to photography as a medium as a visual artist.
