Maeve Stam’s photographs immediately enchant us, because this young photographer’s eye is so youthful and innocent. In her work, Stam articulates a lightness and ease that have become rare. Her pictures smell of endless summers und unbridled life. Perhaps that’s partly due to the fact that she often involves friends in her projects to capture real life in her works.
Stam grew up in Utrecht, where she first studied graphic design for one semester. That’s where she discovered the craft of photography and decided to study it in art school. Before graduating, she moved to Amsterdam, where she still lives and works.
