Marieke Van der Velden
Hello, I'm Marieke van der Velden, a documentary and portraits photographer.
I'm based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
I work a lot for (corporate) magazines, trade journals, adverts and government publications, nationally and internationally.
Organizations such as UNICEF, CARE International and AIDS fonds have sent me abroad around 45 times to photograph their projects and campaigns, mostly in Africa, Asia and Middle East.
Self initiated projects such as 'Baghdad Today', 'A monday in Kabul', 'Outside Syria' and 'The Island of All Together' got published on worldwide media like the LENS Blog from New York Times, The Guardian and Le Monde.
