There are landscapes that make us feel either connected or disconnected from it, but Astrid Verhoef’s series Inscapes explores the simultaneous feeling of both connection and detachment. Utterly dreamlike, the Dutch fine art photographer embraces the strangeness of the landscapes by adding even stranger visual compositions that are tinged with hints of Freud and Surrealism. By placing her subjects in unexpected places, she shapes a new reality which “stages scenes and reveals emotions that arise from the subconscious”. The series was shot against the dramatic landscapes of Western Australia, the Netherlands, the US and Lanzarote, the images mirroring each other in aesthetic, emotion and composition.

Her work has been featured in various exhibitions and publications worldwide. Discover more here and on Instagram.
