Maren Michaelis is a Berlin-based photographer and designer. Her photography has captured the essence of musicians, dancers, fetish performers, and a host of other identities dwelling in the underworld of art. Her lens weaves through all lanes and genres, ignoring the rules and expanding the boundaries of what is considered conventional. 


Venture further and one could describe Michaelis' art as creative and poetic- energy with its own vision and conviction. It is all encompassing -atmospheric, expressive and dark. It is spontaneous, spur of the moment, breathing life and soul into the finished product. Unusual colors and superfluous accessories, alongside striking images with interesting subjects and a spontaneous set design or striking nature. Michaelis renders her imagery contemporary yet timeless, refusing to adhere to trends of the moment.
