Open your Inner Eyes is a vibrant tribute to the limitless imagination that lies within all of us, if we look past the obvious.


Similar to how planets develop from a dense disc of gas and dust encircling young stars, our thoughts are created from an inexhaustible number of building blocks.

 Our thought foundation is continuously enriched and revitalized. Every external experience that affects us is absorbed, stored in our memory, or instantly utilized as the basis for fresh ideas. Within our minds, we have the liberty to continuously create, modify, deconstruct, and rebuild ideas.

Motion is essential for facilitating experiences, fostering understanding, and exploring fresh perspectives and alternative truths. It forms the basis of our growth and knows no bounds. Remaining stagnant is not a viable option.


Open your Inner Eyes is Frederike Fennema's graduation series for the Photo Academy Amsterdam in 2024.
