Joyce van Dijk

Joyce van Dijk heeft al vanaf haar 16e een ware passie voor fotografie. Met haar diploma’s grafische school en de kunstopleiding op zak, verhuisde ze in 2000 naar Londen om daar te werken als webdesigner. Al snel werd haar duidelijk dat ze haar grenzen wilden verleggen en het was eind maart 2006 dat ze naar Alice Springs vertrok, een klein afgelegen en zeer geïsoleerd dorpje midden in Centraal Australië waar de Aboriginals nog traditioneel leven in de National Parks en Communities rondom het dorp. Hier was het dat haar passie voor fotografie haar beroep werd. Door haar werk en grote respect voor de Aboriginal cultuur kreeg ze al snel een ‘skinname’ Nakkamarra (sister) van één van de elders van de Arrernte Tribe in Alice Springs. Hiermee kon ze veel voor de inheemse gemeenschap en inheemse overheid fotograferen. In 2016 nam Joyce naast de Nederlandse ook de Australische nationaliteit aan.

Joyce heeft 12 jaar lang succesvol een eigen fotografie eenmanszaak gerund voordat ze in juni 2018 het mooie Alice Springs achterliet om dichter bij haar familie in Nederland te kunnen zijn. Ze heeft verschillende prijzen gewonnen met haar werk, waaronder de internationale -, en de prestigieuze “The Australian Professional Photographer of the Year Award” en ze ontving tweevoudig de titel “The Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year” van Sony. In Alice Springs probeerde Joyce altijd haar relatie tot de Australische outback/natuur en Aboriginal cultuur vast te leggen in haar werk. Momenteel werkt Joyce als vrijwillige fotografe voor het Weekblad van Deurne, Peelbelang en het Contact. Ook werkt ze vrijwillig als fotografe en grafisch vormgever voor VVV Deurne. Nog steeds met passie!
