Hester den Boer

Hester den Boer (1981) is an independent photographer and journalist. Since 2009 she regularly travelled to Russia, often staying for longer periods in remote places in Siberia. This enabled her to produce in-depth stories on Russian society. In 2015 Den Boer was shortlisted for the European Press Prize.

Her stories have been published in media like NRC, De Groene Amsterdammer, Trouw and Investico. Her photographs have been exhibited internationally in places including Photoville (US), FoamLab (NL) and Kaunas Photo Festival (LT).
