Amy Opstal (b.1996, NL) is a Dutch artist based in The Hague, Netherlands. Her work explores taboos and problems in society. Through documentary photography, Amy captures the essence of reality by focusing on unlikely subjects in their vulnerable state. Her creative process is not as quick as taking snap images. She collaborates with her subjects and creates a safe space for them to exchange and be comfortable. Even when it takes a long time to build a relationship, she believes it is the key to creating a deeper connection with the people she captures.
