Maren Klemp is a fine art photographer living and working in Oslo, Norway. Interested in self portraiture, black and white photography with the use of vintage photographic equipment .Using both herself and her children as her subjects, her goal is to raise awareness of mental health through her work.
“My goal is to raise awareness of mental health through my work. I consider my photography to be a plunge into the darker sides of the human mind, and many of my images are visual representations of conditions associated with mental illness. The pictures tell about those who are gripped by darkness, isolation and sadness, and about relationships with close family . They tell about the lack of belonging, to live in a separate world that few or no others can enter or understand. It’s about the fog that comes creeping , which overpowers and paralyzes, the invisible disease.” – says Klemp
