Rineke Dijkstra

Rineke Dijkstra attended the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam from 1981 until 1986.Dijkstra concentrates on single portraits, and usually works in series, looking at groups such as adolescents, clubbers, and soldiers. Her subjects are often shown standing, facing the camera, against a minimal background. This compositional style is perhaps most notable in her well-known beach portraits, which generally feature one or more adolescents against a seascape. This style is again seen in her work on pregnant women. On of her works entitled, Daniel, Adi, Shira, and Keren, Rishonim High School, Herzliya, Israel consists of two photograghs taken 20 months apart. It evokes questions about the youths' futures and whether they were, are, or will be in uniform
