Miranda Schmitz (°1969) is an award winning photographer and visual storyteller from Belgium. She studied Economics and Psychology and in daily life she works as an independent consultant in Finance and HR. Nevertheless she also caught the photography bug. In June 2017 she graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lier. In addition she followed several master classes led by well-known photographers (e.g. Michael Ackerman and Klavdij Sluban). The enigmatic and cinematic portraits from her graduation work received global praise with several awards and nominations. But her other series (e.g. ‘Black Waves’) were also frequently exhibited in galleries and on photo festivals across the world (e.g. Bruges, Sydney, New York, San Francisco, Lishui,, Kuala Lumpur,). Miranda Schmitz is drawn to dark and psychological issues, to life changes and to a mix of vulnerability and strength. She strives to compile atmospheres, moods and feelings in her work. She prefers to make pure but suggestive and ambiguous images that are often layered. It is the emotion and the visual poetry that provide an extra layer to her images.
