This is a special window for the TAGREE members. Diverse, different points of view and styles are presented here. We are neither elitists nor dogmatists in the world of photography. We are not alien to the world but also do not follow the mainstream path of photography platforms. Our magazine is for all people who like exploring the diversity of visual arts.
Please introduce yourself.
My name is Mauriliers Schoenmaekers. I live in the south of the Netherlands close to the German and Belgian border. A true European. In June 2019 I graduated from the art academy in Maasmechelen. As a final exam I have published a photo album with photo poems with dream images and poems called “Dwaaldromen”.
Why have you become a photographer/artist?
I have been photographing since I was 16 years old. A whole time, photography has come to the background of my work and family, but I have picked it up again for 8 years. Photo art and poems have become second nature. It is like a life’s need to be able to express my emotions. To encourage people to take a look at the ordinary things in life and see their poetry.
How and where do you work?
My free work consists of poetic images that are supplemented with texts. A dreamer. I prefer black and white images. The wonder about the ordinary things of every day. Visualize images and feelings in my head.
