My name is Mariëtte Aernoudts and since 9 years I am a self thought photographer/
imagemaker. Most of my portraits are from children or young people and always in
colour. I work very intuitive and during a shoot my ideas are becoming unstoppable.
Except my portraits I create my own imaginary world using my storytelling images. I
try to soften the realistic life. I am always looking for renewal, with my own feelings
which I want to connect in my photos.
I received several dutch prizes and in 2018 I won an award in SIPA contest Siena
Italy. Last February one of my photos was nominated for the Sony World
