Who I am


Artist Statement

Daphne Wageman (1982), is a visual artist and fine art photographer. She focuses on conceptual and portrait photography and specializes in 19th century glass negatives. She researches innovative applications in photographic processes and traditional techniques in analog photography such as dry plate photography and carbon printing. Her love for craftmanship is reflected in Daphne’s innovative designed and handmade 3D installations.

After a career in (typo-) graphic design, stylist and designer in 3D LED light ornaments, Wageman graduated with honour as a photographic designer at the University of Applied Photography. In 2018 she completed The Northern Light Masterclass in visual storytelling.

The visual stories are based on Daphne’s personal fascinations, experiences and reflections on her intimate world. The sophistication in her work created with deeply commitment allows you to feel connected with her stories and you experience a new dimension.

Her work has been showcased at Gorcums museum, Museum MORE, Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Scope Art Fair (Miami), Musée du Louvre (Parijs) and Galerie Pouloeuff. Wageman wins the first price for her pitch at the live photography event ‘De donkere Kamer’ with the project BlindSight.

Daphne  presented her expertise in glass negatives through the art program ‘Het geheim van de meester,  AVRO TROS. Invited and working together with experts in the art field she reconstructed ‘The girl in white kimono’ by using the original Breitner camera.
