Rachel Stone was born in 1976 in the city of Schiedam in the Netherlands. She did a four year co-op with sculptor Miquel Penso and currently lives in Nijmegen.
"In my work I use mostly myself as a model. I achieve my effects first of all with my camera and then work on them when needed in photoshop. My inspirations come from everything I hear and see which immediately translates itself in a never ending flow of images, sometimes hard to keep up with so I am in the habit of writing them down now."
"I have two methods of working; One is the intuitive one where I get a certain feeling, collect materials and set up the scene in a short period of time. Examples of this type are the rosa series, the self portrait with orange phone, tea before I go and tea with me."
"The other method is working on a pre-conceived idea or concept. Examples are: the ten seconds exposure time series, scream free of fish, prometheus, untitled so far, lover's lament and the nightmare series."
