Maartje Roos graduated of the Dutch Photo Academy in 2010 (cum laude), was asked in 2015 to participate in the World Photography Cup. She received several nominations and was named as one of the most talented photographers in the Netherlands of 2014.
In both commissioned and free work, Maartje Roos her narrative images are all manifestations of creating her own reality. This makes her demand the utmost of her creativity. An image always starts with a picture in her head. That picture will be transferred into a photo. This is not only a matter of quickly taking a photo; it is a long term process in which she is in charge of everything. Location, models, clothing, lighting, shooting and editing are all part of the process. She often creates one photo out of multiple photos, using the digital palette and her ability to empathize. She adds and omits, balancing on registering and directing a photo. What remains is her image. Reality or fantasy, that is hard to tell.
