Maja Ingerslev is a Danish artist who lives and works in Denmark. She was educated at the Jutland Academy of Art and in The School of Photography, Aarhus. Her work is concerned with themes of nature and culture, visibility and disappearance, imagination and reality. Her subtle work investigates our relation to nature and our perception of it. Maja Ingerslev photographs are linked to the tradition of staged photography and to land art with temporary installations in nature.
Nature itself serves as a starting point for her photographic landscapes that seem suspended between something real and something imagined. Her work exploits the relationship between the medium of photography and the idea of reality. At first glance, the represented scenes from nature appear entirely authentic but closer inspection uncovers layers and layers of narrative.
