They are mysterious images that Anouk Brouwer brings from her journey. Small fragments that allow glimpses into the world, that let you see the small things. The photoseries created by Anouk Brouwer offers a tender and introspective exploration of both the landscapes of Egypt and Jordan, and the bonds of sisterhood.
Against the backdrop of the mystical lands of Egypt and Jordan, Brouwer and her sisters, models Pauline Brouwer, Brouwertjex, and Ff Brouwer, experienced a profound reunion after years of separation. Their journey of rediscovery unfolds through Brouwer’s lens, each image a testament to not only their reconnection, but also the arresting beauty of these ancient lands.
Brouwer reflects on the experience: “In the mystical lands of Egypt and Jordan, a profound reunion unfolded as my family, separated for years, came together once again. Against the backdrop of captivating landscapes, we embarked on a journey of rediscovery. These images capture the essence of my three sisters and myself as we not only found each other, but also explored the beauty of these countries and, in turn, discovered ourselves.”
Brouwer’s photographic journey winds its way through Egypt, tracing a path from Cairo to Luxor and Dahab, before journeying to Jordan, meandering through Aqaba, Wadi Rum, Wadi Musa, Dana, Swemeh, Amman, and Jerash. With each location, Brouwer expertly creates a story that highlights the symbiotic relationship between the love of family and the love of place.
