ARTIST STATEMENTS :

Antje Peters was born in West-Berlin, Germany. In 2000, she moved to The Netherlands to study Photography at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht. Since her photography degree, she works as an artist with the medium photography and as a commercial photographer. In 2016 she returned to her hometown where she is currently based. Her work has been shown at C/O Berlin, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam and materialised into various artist books sold at international art book fairs like Off Print Paris and NYABF. Commercially, she contributes regularly to international print-magazines like Numéro Homme Berlin, Numéro Berlin, Wallpaper*, PYLOT, Die Dame, Sleek or Baron Magazine and and has shot online campaigns for Rimowa and Louis Vuitton.
‘My work as an artist takes the existing stereotype of the medium of photography as its focus. Photography of the product becomes the subject within my work itself. Well known visual strategies of the advertising world are analysed and broken down with an artistic approach. Art as well as commercial photography change and influence each other.’ Peters has taught the 'Applied Photography' course at ECAL, Lausanne in 2019.
