Mieke Daugles is a Canadian/Dutch Fine Art Photographer who currently lives and works in London. Mieke is a self-taught photographer whose work questions relationships between people and nature by challenging issues of distance and intimacy.
Mieke draws influence from Abstract Impressionists, the abandonment of the traditional and combines this with the the17th century Dutch Master Painters’ use of light, composition and colour to direct the eye of the viewer. Her images offer a personal interpretation of intrinsic form, rather than narrative content or direct pictorial representation of a subject. Mieke’s work strips down the unnecessary and focuses on simple lines and moments of stillness.
Mieke’s images are held in private collections and have been exhibited internationally in Paris, Rome, Rotterdam, Barcelona and London, including at the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2019. She has won numerous awards, most recently: a Julia Margaret Cameron Award 2020; Minimalist Photographer of the Year Open Category Award 2019, a Chromatic International Photography Award and a British Photography Award 2019. She is a member of the Royal Photographic Society, London Independent Photography, Photofusion, Shutterhub and of the Clapham Photographers' Collective. She is a contributor to Vogue Italia online.
