Amsterdam Girls by Ramona Deckers

Amsterdam Girls is an ongoing personal series which I started in 2014. I document young women from all walks of life going about their lives in the city. We would talk about womanhood, going out, what it feels like to live in Amsterdam and 'surviving' in the city.

Ramona Deckers is an Amsterdam-based photographer. Her photographs are raw, uninhibited, and lay bare private moments. Her love of art allows her to get close to her subjects and reach a level of intimacy, honesty and realism which opens the door to beauty of the natural kind.Working with analogue equipment forces her to be aware of every frame and invites an element of magic and mystery into the work process. Shooting with available light is important as she wants to show things the way they are, in their natural glory.
