Maren Klemp is a fine art photographer living and working in Oslo, Norway. Maren studied fine art photography under professor Robert Meyer at Robert Meyer Kunsthogskole in Oslo, and has been working with fine art photography for several years.
Maren Klemp was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder a few years ago, and although it was quite hard to get a diagnosis like that, it also inspired her to incorporate it in her work. You can find a great deal of written literature on mental illness, but Maren wanted to explore how mental illness might look like. This is why she started the project “The Veil Of Fog”. Her goal with this project is to raise awareness of mental health. She considers her photography to be a plunge into the darker sides of the human mind, and 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. Maren Klemp’s work has been shown in both solo- and group exhibitions, and it has been featured in magazines worldwide.
