    Art Brokerage: Rineke Dilkstra Dutch Artist and Photographer: b. 1959. Rineke Dijkstra was born 1959 in Sittard, Netherlands. Dijkstra attended the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam from 1981 until 1986. She then spent a few years working commercially, taking corporate portraits and images for annual reports. Dijkstra concentrates on single portraits, and usually works in series, looking at groups such as adolescents, clubbers, and soldiers, from the Beach Portraits of 1992 and on, to the video installation Buzzclub/Mysteryworld (1996-1997), Tiergarten Series (1998-2000), Israeli soldiers (1999-2000), and the single-subject portraits in serial transition: Almerisa (1994-2005), Shany (2001-2003), Olivier (2000-2003), and Park Portraits (2005-2006). Her subjects are often shown standing, facing the camera, against a minimal background. This compositional style is perhaps most notable in her beach portraits, which generally feature one or more adolescents against a seascape. This style is again seen in her studies of women who have just given birth. Dijkstra's works are held in numerous museum collections throughout the U.S. and including the Tate, London.
