Miriam Baans (b. Voorburg) is an autonomous photographer based in the Netherlands. She is fascinated with the elusiveness and vulnerability of life. Her camera allows her to connect with people and research. She always chooses subjects close to her heart, either from a memory, an experience, or a question that is occupying her. She loves to experiment, not only with her subjects but also with different photography techniques, such as pinhole, Polaroid, photogram and luminogram.
Miriam graduated from the Fotovakschool University of Applied Sciences in 2017. Her graduation project “Looking for Her” was subsequently published in Kiekiekrant and was exhibited in Rotterdam (Dock Gallery) and Amsterdam. She followed an eight-month Masterclass taught by Jan Rosseel that was part of the photofestival BredaPhoto. Recently she has been selected as New Dutch Photography Talent 2019 by GUP.
