about


Evelin is a Dutch photographer & cinematographer, currently based in London, and hailed by British Cinematographer Magazine as part of the New Wave in 2019. She picked up a nomination for the BSC's Short Film Cinematography Award in 2018 and 2019, and she is working in features, TV drama, and commercials.

Her most recent credits include ITV’s crime drama Vera (2022) with director Paul Gay, and Channel 4’s drama Deceit (2021, 2nd Unit) with directors Niall MacCormick and Jenny Ash. The drama examines the complicated and toxic sexual politics of the early ‘90s and the police’s obsession with the wrong man, entering a dysfunctional world, where a female undercover officer, codename ‘Lizzie James’, is asked to become sexual bait for a suspected killer.

Evelin is well-known for her distinctive imagery, both still and moving. Visceral, textured and intricate, akin to paintings. She is instinctively drawn to stories which unearth the complexities, psychology and fragility of our human existence, our psyche, and our behaviour. She is a lover of fine art, sports, the great outdoors, travelling Planet Earth, an environmentalist & feminist, supporter of mental health, and very sensitive to the eternal qualities of film.

Evelin is evoked by films and series such as We Are Who We Are (2020), Pieces of a Woman (2020), Joker (2019), Criminal: UK (2019), At Eternity’s Gate (2018), Suspiria (2018), Unsane (2018), 53 Wojny (2018), The Square (2017), Mindhunter (2017), Manhunt: Unabomber (2017), Sumarbörn (2017), The Fall (2013), Under the Skin (2013), Borgman (2013), Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012), The Turin Horse (2011), Antichrist (2009), Children of Men (2006), The Village (2004), The Cell (2000), Funny Games (1997), Satantango (1994), The Silence of the Lambs (1991), Blue Velvet (1986), The Shining (1980), Stalker (1979).
