Evelin is a Dutch 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 Emerging Cinematographer Award in 2018 and 2019. Evelin is well-known for her distinctive imagery, both still and moving. Visceral, textured and intricate, akin to paintings.

She is working in features, tv drama, commercials, and made her first foray into television with 100 Vaginas (2019). Most recently, she shot 2nd Unit on crime drama My Name is Lizzie (2021), and is set to shoot her first feature in early 2021.

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, the sublimity of nature and the great outdoors, travelling Planet Earth, sports, supporter of mental health, and very sensitive to the eternal qualities of film.

Evelin is evoked by films and series such as 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).
