Annemarie Spilker The Worlds Best Photos by Annemarie Spilker Photography Flickr


Annemarie Spilker (born 1980, Hillegom) is a Dutch photographer best known for her self-portraits and landscapes. Spilker attended The Photography Academy in Amsterdam where she graduated Cum Laude in 2003, with the series self-portraits "Searching to fill the emptiness..."


Spilker's photography focuses on penetrating self-portraits with an uncomfortable and confronting atmosphere, in which she searched for the hidden places in her own personality. Her landscapes appear almost unreal due to the unprecedented silence and timelessness. Since college, Spilker has worked mainly with a medium format Hasselblad, the reason most of her images are square. Sometimes she works with antique medium format cameras from around 1930-1940.

She is a member of the World Photography Organisation.

In 2012 Annemarie started the art collaboration Bulbfiction. Bulbfiction is a collaboration of 6 artists living in De Duin en Bollenstreek (Flower District) in Holland. They are working in their own fields of art and with their own styles but all with the same theme, The Flower District. Annemarie currently lives and works in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
