About
Sabine Rovers (b. 1992, Ascot, UK) is a photographer, storyteller and explorer at heart. Her work is driven by a childish curiosity and a sensitivity to discover and experience the world around her. From a sincere, open and optimistic perspective, she looks for stories that help us slow down and (re-)connect to the basic, yet essential aspects of life that we tend to lose contact with in our modern society. Involvement and collaboration are key in her process, she prefers to make work with her subjects, instead of about them. Ultimately, Sabine hopes to share different perspectives and encourage new ways of seeing, connecting with and understanding the world we live in.


Sabine has self-published two books and also gives photography workshops for Fotodok.

She is based in The Hague and available for assignments worldwide.

Education:
2016 - 2020         BA Photography, Royal Academy of Art (KABK), The Hague
2011 - 2015         BA Media Studies, University of Amsterdam
