"Vagabond" by Berber Theunissen

Berber Theunissen is a photographer based-in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In June she graduated with her project "Vagabond" at the Photoacademy in Amsterdam. All photos were shot with her Pentax 6x7 camera and Kodak Portra 400 film.
"Last year I was living between Antwerp, Amsterdam and Otterlo (a small village in the Netherlands). I never stayed at the same place more than three nights. I was researching how this nomadic lifestyle would affect my life. Besides that I also tried to determine my place in this grim society, because when you open up the paper or turn on the TV negativity is all around."
"That's one of the reasons why I’m a photographer. I think I use photography to create some kind of safeguard. When I lose grip of a certain situation I like capturing the moments, emotions and memories. I reflect upon my own struggles by looking how my friends and people who surround me cope with the same situations and emotions. For me photography is a tool to look at my own life in an objective way." Berber says of her work.
