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.

16th Julia Margaret Cameron Award

I’m feeling super grateful today, as I have just learned that I have received an honourable mention in the 16th Julia Margaret Cameron Award (part of the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards)!
The awarded series “Ruminations” was the one I exhibited during lockdown in Copenhagen, January 2021, and I’m truly happy to see it chosen among 3245 entries for this international award.
I have attached a link to the section of the awards that includes the Self-Portrait winners….

FotoNostrum Lockdown photo competition

I made it as a Fine Art finalist with this image from my 2020 lockdown series “Locked Away” in the FotoNostrum x Worldwide Photography Gala Awards ‘Lockdown Competition’ and has been published in issue 12 of FotoNostrum Magazine (
A HUGE thanks to the jurors and editors!
Text from the magazine:
“As the world faced the first lockdowns and we all entered into the unknown, artists started to document what a day in 2020 was like for them. Days turned into weeks, weeks into months, months of isolation and confusion.
Art has had to reinvent and question itself in ways we had not imagined before. From the digitalization of mediums to capturing everyday images from one’s immediate proximity, artists faced unprecedented technical, financial, and artistic challenges.
Photography, whether it be fine art or documentary, changed drastically in the year 2020. The Lockdown competition was launched during the first wave of COVID 19, receiving
images dated between January 23, 2020 (when the lockdown started in China), and the submission date.
The thousands of images received from all over the world showed a common pattern of creativity, emotions and commotions. The images speak for themselves, no captions are necessary, and in the respective statements of the submitting artists, some words were repeated over and over again: Self-isolation, Restriction, Boredom, Loneliness, Stress, Bubble, Tolerance, Mutual help, Anxiety, Fear, Introversion, Silence, Emotions, Commotion, Escape, Reality, Surreal, Monotony, Vulnerability.”

The winners are:

Documentary Winner AREK RATAJ from Silesia, Poland

Fine Art Winner FABIEN RUYSSEN from Brussels, Belgium.

Runners Up in the Fine Art Section: ROCIO VILLANUEVA from Guatemala, Guatemala and MARGARITA MAVROMICHALIS from Athens, Greece.

Finalists Documentary Section: Bruke Marew, Elliot Ross, Giulia Mozzini, Hermann Bredehorst, Joice Kreiss, Kelley Dallas, Michelle Sank, Mikhail Lebedev and Sigrid Debusschere.

Finalists Fine Art Section: Abhijit Bose, Bert Daenen, Cory Graham, Diane Fenster, Emmanuel Faure, Enda Burke, Henri T., Jacob Morell, John Keogh, Juile Stoermer, Julie de Waroquier, Marcus Edwards, Maria Fynsk Norup, Mariapia Bracchi, Marita Gootee, Olivia Fernandez, Ricardo Sandoval, Susan Brandt Graham, Todd Bradley and Zsófia Daragó.

We congratulate the winners, runners up and finalists for an excellent, creative and bold artwork. All awarded artwork, including finalists, will be exhibited at the FotoNostrum Gallery in Barcelona, in late 2021, in a date to be determined according to the evolution of the safe travel conditions.

From the edges – exhibition at Galleri Øckenlund


“From the edges” – Melankolsk æstetik

Fotokunst på Galleri Øckenlund

Kolde januar byder på en fotoudstilling, som tiltaler det æstetiske øje. Henrik Haupt fotograferer sine omgivelser. Han betragter dem nøje og er nysgerrig på det, som mennesker efterlader sig; tomme og efterladte bygninger, som forfalder og overtages, måske endda erobres, i en stadig proces af naturen. Hans værker er æstetiske i deres kontraster mellem klare farver og gråtoner, mellem lys og mørke, mellem natur og kultur. Der ligger mange fortællinger i værkerne, som venter på at blive digtet. Maria Fynsk Norups billeder er iscenesatte kunstfotos, hvor kroppen, tiden og rummet udforskes. Kroppen stråler lysende på den mørke baggrund og danner kontrast, så den tiltrækker sig opmærksomhed. Den bevæger sig i yderpositioner, som om den afsøger egne og det omliggende rums grænser. Hendes værker er meget æstetiske; fuldstændig afstemte i deres farver, linjer og former, som nærmest fremstår grafiske. Også her får man lyst til at digte fortællinger ud fra motiverne. Begge kunstnere balancer på blandingen af melankolske motiver og hyperæstetiske formsprog.

Periode: 1.-23. januar 2021

Åbningstider: to-fre: 14-17 & lør: 10-13
