MAYA BEANO - www.mayabeano.com
I was born in Amman, Jordan and have spent half of my life in the Middle East and the other half in Europe. Wherever I am, I'm inspired by the weather, the climate and the landscapes around me.
During my time working as a research scientist in medicinal chemistry in Cambridge, UK, I began to experiment with photography as a creative outlet, particularly with 35mm film. Inspired by the film photography community online, I began to share my work on Flickr and Instagram around 2015.
I enjoy transforming a scene such that it becomes what the mind sees rather than what the camera sees. I take a camera with me wherever I go and am driven to capture places both familiar and new. My love of colour and of timeless landscapes hugely influences my photos - the result is a body of work that is ethereal, playful and melancholic.
The visual arts have enriched my life in countless ways - I also love drawing and painting using both traditional and digital media.
Alongside selling prints of my photos via this store, I license photos to musicians for album artwork and to companies like Apple, Instagram, Sony and Lexus for various uses - get in touch to discuss your thoughts.
