17th Julia Margaret Cameron Award


So this is exciting! My in-progress series “Dryads – The Treebound” has just won an honourable mention in the Fine Art section of the 17th Julia Margaret Cameron Award (part of the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards). It’s such an honour to have it highlighted like this. Huge thanks to FotoNostrum and the jurors Laura Noble of L A Noble Gallery and online gallerist Jennie Rickets!

Link to larger images in my portfolio:
About the series: The ancient Greek stories of the dryads are full of drama, beauty and anthropomorphised ways of explaining the mythical or inexplicable in the natural world. The dryads were honoured as semi-godlike female spirits inhabiting trees and groves, often bound in such a way that their life itself was tied to the life of the trees.
Creating this project around the dryads is for me a way to lift the stories into our time, and remind people that our lives are equally bound to the life of the natural world. We as humans need to wake up to the fact that we have become reliant upon natural resources to the point of destroying the foundation of what we need to live.
I wish to emphasise the mysterious, sometimes slightly eerie sensation you experience within older forests – when it feels like everything is alive, and someone might be watching.
The aim is to create a range of scenes from the peaceful or idyllic to the dark and haunted, drawing inspiration from classical paintings of the nymphs, as well as from descriptions in Ovid’s “Metamorphoses” and texts from the Greek Mythology.

FotoNostrum Magazine feature


I had the opportunity to talk a bit about my practice, inspiration and more in the 17th installment of FotoNostrum Magazine.

“In my creative practice, I often work from the inside out, meaning that I may start with a vivid dream, dark fears, strong emotions, or old memories that have surfaced, and then I find a way to express this in a way that will make sense both to me and to others.”

Økant Performance Festival 2021

Ærø’s first performance festival – July 10-12 2021 in Marstal.
Copenhagen based performance company Woo collective and Ærø based Marstal Art have invited artists from across Denmark to develop and perform new site specific artworks inspired by the harbour of Marstal.
Representing Ærø in 2021 are Susanne and Mads Paluszewski-Hau and Maria Fynsk Norup.
(you can see the full list of artists as well as the program at or on the event Facebook page)
Maria Fynsk Norup will be installing her exhibition “Ocean of Memories” in the old bus terminal on the harbour featuring several works created specifically to the site. She will be playing with the expression and tactility of the photographs by e.g. presenting works printed on a gauzy cotton-silk material, fragmented images and alternative hangings. ‘Ocean of Memories’ is an invitation to dive into the artist’s inner ocean of images, and can be experienced as a physical manifestation of a walk through the floating world of memories.
The exhibition is open Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10.-12- July from 11-17. You have to have a valid festival pass to enter.
About the exhibition (from the Danish programme):

Ocean of Memories (2021)

Fotograf og visuel kunstner, Maria Fynsk Norup, præsenterer udstillingen Ocean of Memories, hvor flere af værkerne er skabt direkte til udstillingsstedet. Udstillingen er skabt med inspiration fra vores forbundethed med vandet, både fysisk og billedligt samt måden hvorpå minder og bevidstheder flyder op til overfladen og følger strømmen. 

Norup leger med fotografiets udtryk og taktilitet ved bl.a. at præsentere værker trykt på florlet bomuld-silke, fragmenterede billeder og alternative ophængninger. Ocean of Memories er en invitation til at dykke ned i kunstnerens indre hav af billeder og kan opleves som en fysisk manifestation af at gå ind i mindernes flydende verden.
