Her favorite artwork

Sanne about her favourite artwork: ‘The photograph Still life No.5 by Erwin Olaf is my favourite piece in the collection because it evokes a strange feeling of distance. This is a tranquil still life with flowers presented in a simple ceramic vase. The photograph has an almost meditative effect on me’.
