Lotte van Raalte
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 school children in Cape Town. 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 her directorial debut for Ace & Tate – Lotte is not one to stand still. With multiple in progress personal projects, an interest in womanhood, sustainability and education rights continues to inform her work. In 2020 she released her first independent photography book and a solo exhibition, BODY, receiving appraisals from the likes of i-D , Wallpaper and AnOther magazine.
