Artist Elspeth Diederix was born in Kenya, grew up in Colombia, and now lives and works in Amsterdam. She studied at both the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. In 2002, she won the prestigious Prix de Rome Photography award.
In recent years, Elspeth’s focus shifted from her travels towards her immediate surroundings. This change saw her initiate the Miracle Garden project, a living flower garden in Amsterdam’s Erasmuspark, which she herself maintains. She describes this garden as her studio, but also as her muse.
She joined in a conversation with writer and philosopher Stine Jensen.
