Flokje van Lith studied photography at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague. For many years Van Lith worked as portrait photographer commissioned by both companies and private clients. Since 2011 she focuses more on her independent work. After having completed her first autonomous series in 2011, it got selected immediately for the prestigious Foto Festival Naarden, soon after which participation in international exhibitions and art fairs followed. Van Lith's images have won multiple international awards.
'My artist's practice is driven by the desire to tell stories. In working with adolescent girls or young women, vintage clothing, furniture and aged locations I am allowed to time travel into the past - where memory, loss and hidden stories abide.'
