A 25-year-old Dutch photographer Isa de Jong presents her on-going photo project ‘Born in a Diamond Mine’ at Encontros da Imagem in Braga on September 15-18.
Using photography, drawings and notes, she portraits the face of Gen Z – with its personal and in-depth stories, dreams and fears planted in times of a crisis, environmental disasters, and global technological change. She aims to create a time capsule bottling the honest and vulnerable truth told by her contemporaries about their vision of the future. Through collaborative portraits, she offers a unique glimpse into their anxieties and uncertainties while also uncovering the shared experiences and lessons they’ve learned during the project.
Isa’s talent have been recognized by FOTODOK, which has selected her as one of the participants in the FOTODOK TALENT EMBASSY program. Thanks to the Pictoright Fund’s support, Isa and nine other emerging photographers got the opportunity to develop their skills and show their work at international photography festivals.
During a pop-up presentation at Palácio do Raio, she will display selection of portraits and handwritten notes beautifully printed and sponsored by Fujifilm Original Photographic Paper. We are happy to help with the preparations and support the project.
The works will be on display from September 15 to September 18 at Palácio do Raio, Braga. Save the date!
