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 is based in The Hague and currently doing an apprenticeship at Docwerk as a documentary filmmaker for the NTR.
She has self-published two books and also gives photography workshops for Fotodok.
