Jan Royce Gallery

A Scholar from the Rotterdam Photo Academy, Marijke Stroucken specialises in portraits and documentary photography. Marijke lives and works in The Hague, The Netherlands. She has been nominated twice for the Dutch Photography Award; Fotogram Trofee.  Marijke’s style can be described as engaging, and with a documentary approach in the way she captures her images, her work presents a stylised version of reality. In some photos real situations are being used to form an aesthetic image, whereas in others, images are being staged to enhance real life events or moments, as Marijke sees them.
