My name is Marjolein Schrurs (1994) and I’m a photographer. I don’t leave my house without my camera. I love to stroll for hours through the streets of my neighborhood. Maybe I’ll come across a present. Presents are special moments that I could never think of myself, they surprise me. It’s about that decisive moment that is now happening. It will be gone later. I move as a voyeur through the streets, looking for these moments.

 

I was born in a small village where everybody knows each other. Now I live in a big city where people live very cramped and close to each other. Theme’s like privacy, loneliness and urbanization always play a big role in my work. I usually tend to make projects in my own surroundings. The daily moments that happen around me inspire me; A dog putting his head through the iron bars of the balcony, to peak at people who pass by. Or a neighbor who has a lot of trouble cutting his hedge. You don’t need to travel far to find beautiful, surprising and absurd things.
