Leonie van den Ende, born in Dordrecht, studied photography at the AKV St. Joost in Breda. She exhibited at diverse places for instance at Galerie Wit in Wageningen, during the cultural night Breda and BredaPhoto. Leonie tries to communicate the importance of functionless by means of gravure printing techniques, photography and writing. In that sense, her craftsmanship is a counter-movement to the rapid nature of our current society, in which there is no time for the unknown and the unexpected. In her practice, she argues that the latter “awkwardnesses” are indeed of value.
