Marijke Groeneveld (1986), living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Photographer Marijke Groeneveld looks at her pictures as experiments. She makes collages of photographs and use graphic design to emphasize ugliness and a kitschy character. Besides Groeneveld refers to fast advertising, profound poetry and daily news. She struggles with the border between low and high cultures. It creates tension and conflicts. Which returns in the pictures.

Revealing portraits of unknown people who pose for a reason; to share their stories and bodies. This situation cre- ates a certain awkwardness in the pictures.
