About me

Iris Tempelaar is a photographer, working in fashion and art. After dancing her whole childhood and completing a musical degree, she got accepted to the art academy Willem de Kooning in Rotterdam. This is where her visual journey began. ‘I am fascinated by gender expression and how society connects visual aspects to a certain gender role. Influenced by my own experience as a dancer body poses form a central element in my imagery.’
