Marieke Van der Velden
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. I also work for (corporate) magazines, trade journals, adverts and government publications, nationally and internationally.
Self initiated projects such as 'Baghdad Today', 'A monday in Kabul', 'Outside Syria' and 'The Island of All Together' got published on worldwide media such as LENS Blog from New York Times, The Guardian and Le Monde.
My work includes portrait series, landscape series, and photo essays in which both come together.
