Kirsten Wilmink is a German artist who graduated from the ArtEZ AKI Academy of Visual Arts in Photographic Design. Within her work, Kirsten Wilmink studies stereotypes and prejudices within today’s society and more specifically, those in Germany. Her images are very intriguing and often filled with hidden symbology. 

Kirsten Wilmink’s bright photos are often centered around the family and inside the home. Some of the common themes include alcohol, animals and food. The interesting images feature pictures of a woman with brutally bruised eyes, a woman sitting in a posh home with her two poodles and a family dinner where you can’t see most of the people’s faces. I’m sure that you could spend hours analyzing each photo coming up with a story that each one portrays.
