Iris Bergman (1993) is based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

As a visual  artist, I search for the edge between fiction and reality. Driven by my  fascination for utopias and make-ability I use the medium photography to create  new  worlds. Due to the constant alternation between documenting and directing,  there is a tension in my research. Playfully I collect the results until a new  world emerges.
