Since the beginning of her career Jenny Boot wanted to convey her feelings though art and for this reason, she started painting, but soon discovered that with photography she could control her vision even more.
Light is an important aspect of Jenny’s work. According to the artist, even though a photo, an idea, or a model can be beautiful, light is what makes or breaks a photograph. It is through the use of light that she is able to capture her models in painterly images.
Jenny graduated in fashion photography at the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam, worked for many magazines, and has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including a nomination at the Cannes Lion Awards and an Honorable mention at the prestigious Moscow International Foto Awards.
Her artworks have been presented at the most prestigious international art fairs. They are also a part of the collection at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, beside artists like Damien Hirst, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Takashi Murakami, KAWS and Dustin Yellin.
One of the works, “Black Girl with Pearl” has been added to the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam collection in 2020.
