Tonya Heeringa is a photographer based in Utrecht, where she studies at the University of the Arts. During her studies, she began to comprehend the specifics of her interests; namely human beings and all the feelings that they are able to experience. She takes these aspects of life and composes them into a fictional story. While creating her work, she tries to find the perfect balance between fiction and reality in which she focuses on the entire aesthetic of the image she is creating; from the sentiment that is communicated to the viewer to the composition of colors that add to the story she is trying to convey.
