Lotte van Raalte
BASED IN AMSTERDAM
Lotte van Raalte is a constant observer driven by a sincere curiosity and remarkable empathy. It’s with this approach that Lotte achieves her intimate and crisp compositions, firmly encapsulating her unique gaze in her pictures. No matter who is in front of her lens she always captures their individuality – with an infectious feeling of empowerment.
Lotte’s work spans from athletes in action for adidas, smiles for Stella McCartney, introducing a new visual style for Arket, to personal projects guided by an interest in womanhood, sustainability and education rights. Alive and real. She has an eye for tactility and utilises nature, bringing a tangible and relatable quality to her work. With an ongoing stream of commissioned projects – including directorial work for various brands including her first TVC for ONVZ – Lotte is not one to stand still. Whether it’s photography or film, the result is always true to her notable signature style. In 2020 she released her first independent photography book and a solo exhibition, BODY. Celebrating the perfectly imperfect with images that demonstrate the immense beauty found in both vulnerability and strength, the book received appraisals from the likes of i-D , Wallpaper and AnOther magazine.
