“Spoon bending daily-life with the aid of her lens, Woudstra shines through the latent relatable darkness of her autonomous vision."
- Dazed & Confused
"Isolde's music, fashion, and portrait photography is strong, very well composed, sensible and never boring. She captures life with a strong eye for the beauty of normality, creating images that reveal the effortless oddness of in-between moments. Her images cut out all unnecessary noise, leaving us with clean, yet very natural and unpolished self-referential freeze frames."
"Name a few cool acts around and it's likely Isolde Woudstra has shot them. From Austra to Lemontrip, Com Truise and Grimes to TR/ST, they've all stood in front of her camera. Woudstra gained fame with her particular well-composed and clean images that never seem to bore. Her strong focus didn't go by unnoticed and her photos were featured in renowned magazines like Subbacultcha, I-D, Mixmag, Esquire & Volkskrant Magazine."

“Photographer Isolde Woudstra manages to capture the eerie hyperrealism of daily life through the medium of photography – taking what exists and twisting it in a way that reveals the peculiarity of human behaviour. Woudstra does not interfere with the imagery through digital manipulation – but specially curates a scene that could have been extracted deep from within the human psyche.”
"Isolde Woudstra finds images that carry a symbolic weight, the outer markers of inner chaos, where loneliness pervades."
