The Netherlands, 1960
Micky currently lives and works in Brabant. After sixteen years abroad, of which the last nine years were spent in the USA, she returned to the Netherlands at the end of 2018. Hoogendijk feels at ease both behind and in front of the camera. You may know her from modelling work, for example for Dutch fashion designer Mart Visser. She also worked as a television and film actress. She is now a photographic artist who often refers to religion, mythology, masquerade, and gender neutrality. She explores the meaning and interpretation of the nude body in photography. She meticulously directs her models to a relaxation in which they want to boldly shed their shame. That condition determines the gaze with which the character focuses on the viewer.
