‘alles is er al’ springs from the lack of inspiration Eva experienced during another lockdown in The Netherlands at beginning of 2021. Eva: ‘I had no idea what to make or where to start, but eventually reminded myself of the lesson of my first book Play: just begin, it always turns into something. With that in mind, I picked up my camera, went outside and started taking photos on the street in my neighborhood, with no purpose other than to get started. Similarly, I started taking objects from my house or the street to my studio to photograph.

A seemingly random collection of images eventually transformed into a new series. One that is about how I don’t need to reach in order to create. Everything is already there, right in front of me; all I need to do is see it. It’s also about seeing the beauty in the small, the everyday.’
