Hi, I’m Maggie. I’m a meditative runner, a natural wine aficionado and an admirer of classical music. I also never leave the house without one of my cameras in my bag, and am rarely without an accompanying notebook.
Creating art has always been an integral part of who I am and how I live, and I have found the camera to be an avenue through which I can tell stories, express and evoke emotions, and open up a visual dialogue. I rely on intuition when shooting photos, seeking to capture a moment naturally even if I am consciously composing elements within that particular shot. I mostly shoot with a 35mm film, using a Nikon Fm3a camera that was gifted to me by my grandmother. Having this connection with her through my camera is huge for me, and it no doubt influences my work in various ways.
Increasingly, I feel my work becoming part of a larger narrative that has to do with the flow of time, the beauty of natural light and the contrasts which unfold with shadows and space, and a deep sense of nostalgia for the quieter, simpler moments in life.
I find that these moments tend to occur in a space where the human and natural worlds intersect one another. Maybe this is why I constantly find myself chasing shadows around the city…
