Miranda Schmitz (°1969) studied Economics at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. In daily life she works as an independent interim manager and consultant.
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 by well-known photographers (e.g. Michael Ackerman and Klavdij Sluban).
Miranda Schmitz strives to compile atmospheres, moods and feelings in her work. She prefers to use suggestive and ambiguous images that are often layered and which viewers may define themselves. It is the emotions and the visual poetry that provide an extra layer to her images.
The enigmatic and cinematic portraits from her graduation work ‘IN BETWEEN’ received global praise with several awards and nominations. The portraits were frequently exhibited in galleries and photo festivals across Europe the United States, Africa and Australia.
