Sacha de Boer started taking photos as a child. Since then she’s never looked back. She looks ahead, and at what’s around her. Looks, sees, absorbs; and shoots. Bang, another perfect picture. Early on a photographer neighbor told her, “Follow your intuition.” Possessed of a keen eye and an abundance of natural talent, she does just that. She also works hard at her craft, as all artists worth their salt must. This has borne fruit, resulting in several books and a string of hi-profile exhibitions. What’s more, Sacha is one of the Netherlands’ foremost television news presenters! Equally at home in front of the lens as behind it, the favorite of her many cameras is still a 1976 Hasselblad.
