Judith Helmer, born in 1982, grew up in the Netherlands. She graduated from the Fotovakschool in 2017, and won the Keep an Eye Fotovakschool Award the same year. She loves the analogue process and prefers to shoot with her analog 6*6 camera.

Her ongoing graduation project ‘Identically Different’ won an honorable mention at The International Photo Awards 2017 and has since been exhibited at several venues & photo festivals worldwide. She has recently been selected as Dutch New Talent 2019 by GUP and won the prize for best portfolio at the portfolio reviews of BredaPhoto.
