The strength in my photography lies in creating a vacuum in time.
A space in which I can capture essential moments.

Theatre as an art form plays a major role in my methods of working. Within theatre lies playfulness, improvisation, intuitiveness and dialogue (verbal and non-verbal) that make the portraits unique in their creation and form. I always look for the obscure and unknown sides of a person’s character and strive for the most aesthetic and authentic representation of it. For me, that not only means beauty, but all the raw, sincere, fashionable and emotional sides that make up ones personality traits.

‘Working with Chloé was a unique and special experience. She’s immersed completely in the story she is telling through the photograph and pulled me fully into it. Being in front of the camera is not something I’m used to, but Chloé made the experience feel very natural. Her calm energy filled me with confidence, and it felt like we’d known each other for years.’

Patrick van Riemsdijk

'Chloe's fotografie heeft altijd die zeldzame combinatie van gestileerd en documentaire. Van terloopsheid/nonchalance, en toch de overduidelijke signatuur van de regisseur. Ze weet zowel in zwart/wit als in kleur beelden te maken die nostalgische retro-elementen bevatten, maar die toch onmiskenbaar eigentijds zijn en van nu. En ze weet haar modellen op de foto te krijgen volgens het motto van The Dead Poet Society: dare to be ugly. Het is een feest om met haar te werken.'

‘Chloé’s true power lies in her original and authentic style. That combined with her talent for fulfilling the wishes of the person in front of the camera - means I would happily recommend her to anyone and everyone I meet.

‘Working with Chloé Chanté Leenheer was a unique experience, her power to express complex stories through images is phenomenal, coupled with her energy that instantly makes a model feel “loose” and “at home” makes it impossible to create anything other than excellence.
