ABOUT ME

 
I am Sterre Fenna (Papendrecht, 1995), a fashion
photographer graduated from the Willem de Kooning
Academy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I grew up in a
creative family with four other siblings and have always
been fascinated by the role of beauty standards in our
everyday lives. 
 
My first year of Art school I completed at the Academy
of Arts Sint Joost in Breda, where I focussed on
photography from a documentary point of view.
 
I soon knew I wanted to combine my passion of
photographing certain moments that would otherwise
go unnoticed, with my interest in fashion and decided
to transfer to the Willem de Kooning Academy of Arts in
Rotterdam.

Here I combined what I had learned from both genres
what resulted in photographing my critical view on
society via fashion photography.
