Ilvy Maijen Fotografie


Ilvy Maijen is a self-taught photographer and healthcare psychologist, based in Maastricht,  the Netherlands. She is an admirer of the art of photography, and experiments continuously. She prefers to make portraits and every now and then she makes a foray into nature photography in which she has a predilection for the sea. In every work, she tries to capture beauty in her own way, whereby simplicity in the images is characteristic. As a psychologist she is fascinated by people and their stories, which is a major motivation in her documentary photography.
