In both her photographs and her sculptures, Micky Hoogendijk shows two qualities that are important to her: strength and vulnerability. From her first photographs taken in 2012 to her latest series The Meetings of the Waters, and in her sculpture series The Ones, she always manages to inextricably link these two extremes. Hoogendijk’s work tells us about the choices life has given her: carry on or break down, come to a standstill or keep moving. She chooses to celebrate life, with all her strength and in all her vulnerability, converting both joy and pain into contemporary yet timeless images. In June 2022 Waanders will publish STRENGTH – vulnerability, Micky Hoogendijk, photography and sculpture, by Karin van Lieverloo.
