Andrea StultiensAndrea Stultiens (Roermond, NL, 1974) studied photography at Utrecht School of the Arts (BFA) and Post St. Joost Breda (MFA). She received and MA from the Masters Photographic Studies of Leiden University/Royal Academy of Art. Not completely comfortable being called a photographer or artist, she prefers to describe her practice as 'working with photographs'. She collects and makes them, writes about them, and reflects on their possible uses in understanding the way we present ourselves and try to represent others. Stultiens published several photobooks and exhibits her work internationally.
Since 2007 Stultiens has been working in Africa and specifically in Uganda. In 2011 she initiated the platform History In Progress Uganda (www.facebook.com/HIPUganda) that collects and shares historical photographs from Uganda to crowdsource information about them and investigates if they can be used to nuance historiography.
Andrea Stultiens teaches at Academy Minerva in Groningen.
