My name is Jolene Adelaar, 23 years young, born and raised in Beverwijk, The Netherlands. I am a fashion photographer with a predilection for colors, prints and everyday life. In my work you mainly see photos of several people in an everyday environment doing everyday things, but photographed in an alienating way by showing something unpredictable with the help of fashion. 
My work always contains a humorous, airy, happy and colorful aesthetic. I want the viewer to be able to escape reality by showing what real life could look like in my utopian world. An inclusive place where everyone can be themselves and where outspoken fashion outfits are accepted and appreciated.
