Helena van der Kraan (1940 - 2020) was a photographer born in Prague, Czech Republic In her late 20s, she fled to the Netherlands and studied visual arts in Amsterdam, with a focus on photography that depicts her sculptural work. Her timeless and classic works include portraits, still lifes, and animals, all captured through black and white photos that prompt reflection on ordinary items in life.
