My passport reads ‘Marijn Engels’. I was born and raised in The Netherlands as the last of three children in a teacher’s family. At home, we were stimulated to observe, explore, create and reflect. Photography asks for all of it. My sisters and I all chose their future in the creative industry and went to national Art Academies in Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. I have lived in Amsterdam since 1999.
