My name is Tess Heijstek, I am 26 years old and I live in the Netherlands. In 2015, I graduated from the AKI Art Academy having studied Fine Art Media. In my first year I was mainly studying sculpture, until I discovered photography and fell in love with the analog process. Locking myself up in the dark room and printing numerous photos became a daily habit. I was delighted to get an internship at the AAP Lab (Amsterdam Analog Photo-printing laboratory). This was a great experience to me, I learned so much there. In 2014 I had my first exhibition together with Wessel Vreeken in ‘Café het Bolwerk’ in Enschede (NL). After my graduation exhibition, I was asked to exhibit more work at the Indigo Art Gallery in Almelo (February 2016) I’m working on new material. Stay tuned!
