Dijkstra is a Dutch Photography/ artist who works mostly on single person portraits, but generally forming some sort of larger series. She has approached topics such as social grouping and the passage of time.

In the series below Dijkstra photographs young men and women who have recently been enlisted into military service, Shany (below) is photographed in 2002 at the induction center in Israel and this continues over 18 months. Each portrait is an intimate reflection on identity and personal expression in the face of military oppression.
