Maria Fynsk Norup (b. 1975) is a fine art photographer, living and working on the tiny island of Ærø in the southernmost part of Denmark.
Maria primarily uses self-portraits as the medium for storytelling in her work, creating imagery that currently revolves around exploring the melancholy of being, the right to a place in the world, and the raw poetry of nature. Her inspiration is often drawn directly from dreams, feelings and past experiences, and her work can therefore vibrate with a dark undertone. Maria was originally trained in classical botany, and the inspiration from the plant world often appears in the visual storytelling in her works.
