Griet Van Malderen

Griet van Malderen

5 July – 31 December, 2024

Griet van Malderen, the daughter of Belgian industrialists, was not initially destined to become a wildlife photographer. She had never studied the subject before beginning her photography career. It is her determination and passion over the years that have brought her to where she is today. Griet is one of the few female wildlife photographers and also an active defender of wildlife. She strives to keep her photos natural while working alongside other talented professionals, both in the field and in the studio.

Griet developed a deep love for nature and the animals around her at an early age. Over the years, she has perfected her art, developing technical mastery and artistic sensitivity that are reflected in each of her photographs. Her unique approach consists of creating an emotional bond between the viewer and the animal by capturing images that convey the grace, power, and fragility of wildlife.Her photographs are characterized by a judicious use of natural light, highlighting the most subtle details of the animals and their environment. She captures fleeting moments, striking expressions, and graceful gestures that reveal the personality of each animal she photographs. Through her lens, Griet creates images that tell stories and inspire admiration and wonder.

After numerous attempts and hard work, we set out to explore different sizes in the collodion process. We started with plates measuring 25 cm x 25 cm, then moved on to plates measuring 50 cm x 50 cm. Finally, we took on the challenge of creating a 1 m x 1 m plate. Despite the many obstacles we encountered, our dedication and perseverance were rewarded. The prints we created on 1 m x 1 m plates offer an astonishing and immersive visual experience, highlighting the aesthetics and distinctive characteristics of the large-scale wet collodion process.
