Ramona Deckers is an Amsterdam-based photographer. Her photographs are raw, uninhibited, and lay bare private moments. Her love of art allows her to get close to her subjects and reach a level of intimacy, honesty and realism which opens the door to a beauty of the natural kind.

Working with analogue equipment forces her to be aware of every frame and invites an element of magic and mystery into the work process. She often shoots with available light as she wants to show things the way they are, in their natural glory.
