Marjolein was taught photography by her father from a young age, he worked in straight 35 mm film.

Since then Marjolein has been working professionally, taking photos of models and products.The search for what is a photo and what makes a photo is "omnipresent". Alternative processes aids her quest. Marjolein belives that visitors to exhibits have been fed the overall idea of what a photo should look like, and when they are confronted with work such as an image transfer there is confusion and they start to look again and think and interact. The global notion of what something should be is an ongoing challenge. She belives that photography needs rethinking, amazement and experimentation.

"Experiment because a real photo is not what people think it should be!"
