About the work
My name is Nanda Bussers and I try to create a deeper and universal layer in my artistic and abstract images. Telling a visual story with a meaning. I find it magical to see new things in the subjects she photographs, discovering unknown worlds or figures. Playing with colors and shapes. It’s about expressing a feeling. For me this is successful if the viewer becomes inspired, intrigued and enjoys the art. But also when it offers comfort, warmth and bright spots.
Visual Story about the phases of life
This particular image is part of a visual story about the phases of life: From the beginning to death. A subject that really moves me. All these abstract images are the result of long ours of observations and studying. It's up to you to find out what's all about, what the secret message of the depictions is and the story she tries to say.
Symbolic and poetic photography
In a symbolic and poetic way, the mystery of these stages of life has been photographic translated. Colorful and constantly looking for strong and surprising shapes. The result are abstract, intriguing and complex images with a deeper and universal layer. A feeling of mysticism - something unknown. Life’s perhaps mysterious, just like the images in which something new can be discovered.
The story starts with the birth of life. From the universal origin, the cosmos, big bang, the formation of the planets, the four elements (earth, air, fire and water) to the energetic and colorful life, and ends with more dark images that reflect the transience of life.
Hopefully you will enjoy my creations and this artistic journey.

About the artist
My name is Nanda Bussers (The Netherlands) and I try to create a deeper and universal layer in my artistic and abstract images. Telling a visual story with a meaning. I find it magical seeing new things in the subjects I photograph, discovering unknown worlds or figures. Playing with colors and shapes.
It is about feeling, emotion and expression. An image has been successful for me if something happens and if there is a certain depth in it. When I hear from the viewer that he/she keeps looking at my image and sees new things over and over again. As in a kind of fantasy world in which you can continue to dream away and fantasize. And the viewer claims the imagination/interpretation and can think or feel his/her own story. Inspired, intrigued, touched by and enjoying my art. But also to be able to offer comfort, warmth and bright points in more difficult times.
So I am not talking about reality, but about the essence and the expression of a certain feeling. A kind of artistic expression. Images that transcend observation. Often you don't see what I actually photographed. Don't know exactly what you see. The subjects I photograph always come from the natural world.
With a fascination for ice in particular. Ice that undergoes continuous transformation. Always moving, takes different shapes and colors. I can discover something new in the details over and over again. Something new is emerging that is no longer to be traced back to reality. I like to be amazed by this and photograph discovering and intuitive.
Life and death
My photos are characterized by a dreamy and mysterious atmosphere, and there’s often a certain symbolism in them. Life and death are a recurring theme in my art photography.
I hope you will enjoy it!
