Dustin Thierry is a contemporary artist and photographer from Curaçao whose work is focused on the Afro-Caribbean diaspora in the Netherlands.


Dustin (b.1985) Willemstad, Curaçao, lives and works in Amsterdam.

The issues he addresses in his photos are often as personal as they are social: He’s fascinated by what drives people. As opinions and pictures fly around the world, he captures moments of stillness for reflection.

Thierry believes that every image comes into its own when given the time and attention it deserves. That’s why he tends to prefer traditional methods. Part of their incomparable beauty lie in the manual process of developing and printing, in which the slowing down of time plays a vital role.

“I’m always happy to discuss collaborations, commissions, editorial work or cameras.”
Feel free to get in touch – it’s good to talk.
