“Your generosity was overwhelming. It's always very difficult for me to show my work to others.  Today you showed us the importance of working in a group. I can't wait to try this out.  
Thank you thank you thank you with all my heart.

— Carolina Cattan,Rio de Janeiro- Brasil

 

 

 

 

  Corinne Noordenbos is a photographer and educator.
She has a long career as a portrait and documentary photographer working for a variety of editorials. In her own projects, she concentrates on daily matters, often with a personal starting point. Her series of Modern Madonna, was made just after she became a mother herself. Her project about Alzheimer after her mother was diagnosed with the disease. Her work has been exhibited all over the world.
Her contribution to education in the Netherlands has impacted on the development of photography internationally. Her former students are now at the forefront of contemporary practice and the development of the book form can be clearly celebrated in the work of former students like Rob Hornstra, Vivianne Sassen and Wassink Lundgren amongst many others. Corinne has been Head of Photography at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague until April 2015.

Noordenbos was born in Amsterdam where she still lives and works.
She got her education at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam.
As a freelancer she has worked for a large variety of Dutch magazines making portraits and documentaries.
 
 


  What stands out in her work is that at no time, Noordenbos wants you to feel a voyeur. She tries to grant people their own worth. Her photographs in particular evoke recognition; the intimate private world in most of her projects attains a universal character.
It is a paradox between individuality and universality that is manifest in all her series.

Her latest work was commisioned by Multistory, an art organisation based in the Midlands of England. The research of health problems related to social economic circumstances in the area of the so-called Black Country, led to a series of portraits of people suffering of COPD.
The work will be presented at the University of Birmingham in March 2018, while the official lauching will be in the Black Country itself in May 2018.
