It’s the unique global impact a photograph can have that made me fall in love with photography. I’ve always enjoyed learning new languages but I’ve always been equally frustrated by the limits and barriers they create. I wanted to be a journalist and talk about the world – with the world. When I moved to France, I realized that photography was going to become my language.

Maja Daniels
Photographer

Maja Daniels is a Swedish independent photographer currently based in Paris.

Her developed interest in cultural differences makes her consider photography as an important mean of communication – it becomes her seventh language. After having studied journalism, anthropology and photography, her work focuses on social documentary and portraiture with an emphasis on human relations in their contemporary environment.

Her ambition in an image is to evoke a feeling of recognition; to a place you’ve never visited or to a person you’ve never met. A professional goal for Maja is to combine images and the written word. She places great emphasis on research and tries to apply sociological and anthropological methods in her approach. This is the reason why she is currently studying part-time to obtain a mixed degree in sociology and anthropology. In order to tell her stories, with a core inspiration in the subject matter, she frequently use a combination of portraits and stills, a style that currently constitute the vast majority of her work.

Maja has also travelled extensively and photographed in different parts of the world.

The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.

  • Rencontres d’Arles 2024
    Beneath The Surface
    Jul 1 – Sep 29, 2024
    Arles, France
    Tremors and turmoil, spirits, traces, parallel readings and rereadings all constitute new perspectives underlying the 2024 edition of the Rencontres d’Arles. Photographers, artists and curators reveal their visions and stories, not least that of our humanity, by turns thwarted, in endless redefinition, resilient, but also visionary. Whether on the margins or established at the center, the narratives lead to divergent, multiple paths, all emanating from the faults in a porous surface: they intertwine, superimpose and overlap.
