Simon Duijs

I’m a Dutch fine art photographer interested in people and the notion of intimacy. As an ongoing series, I photograph the improvised moments of dance academy students. What’s more, I also work as a volunteer for Stichting Still, photographing terminally ill and still born children with their parents.
