â€œI am obsessed with beautiful light. I love long exposure and the unexpected results. It is my decisive moment.â€
Luminous and haunting. Often dreamlike soft yet strikingly present. Simplicity and the clean sensitive imagery of Maikenâ€™s work is inspired of the location and person in front of the camera. Sheâ€™s an artist who doesnâ€™t look for obvious beauty, but digs to the detailed depths of interesting models. Her obsessive love to light keeps her on her toes, pushing her to step out of the artistic comfort zone and experiment to achieve perfection.
Maiken is a kick-ass artist whose true love for photography was found in a small photography club in NÃµmme, Estonia. It took her only one visit to the darkroom when something changed and she was woman forever changed: she fell in love with medium photography. Her love to analogue photography still resonates through when she shoots on film and submerges back to darkroom.
