Mieke is a Canadian and Dutch Fine Art Photographer, living in London, in the UK.
She likes to look at ordinary things differently, rather than document what is obviously in front of her. She seeks out simple lines or moments of stillness amidst chaos. Her images test the boundaries of photography and art; fact and fiction.
Mieke shoots intuitively and hopes to convey a mood or feeling. Her images are of unguarded, contemplative moments. They are often low key and moody.
She draws inspiration from the gorgeous light and rich, sombre colours used by the old Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to direct the eye of the viewer.
Mieke is a member of the Royal Photographic Society, London Independent Photography, Photofusion, Shutterhub and of the Clapham Photographers' Collective. She is a contributor to Vogue Italia online.
Her images have won numerous awards, most recently, the Minimalist Photographer of The Year Open Category 2019, Chromatic International Photography Awards 2019and British Photography Awards 2019. She has exhibited internationally including the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2019.
