Louisiana van Onna (22-01-1995, Amsterdam), is a research-based photographer graduated from the Photography department at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. In her work, all she does revolve around bringing back wonderment to the small and overseen in nature. Driven by imaginative and investigative research, she reflects on the issue on an abstract and visual level, with the ultimate goal to raise the similar question to the viewer and create a sense of wonderment. Her photography lingers between ‘constructed photography’ in which natural and manmade objects are arranged within a staged scene acting as symbols and metaphors, and straight ‘documentary photography’, but always through taking a playful and mundane approach on an urgent matter. She works around themes such as extinction within biodiversity to natural phenomena to climate change. Through gladly collaborating with scientists and biologists in the proces, a collaboration between information and astonishment grows.
