Maude Bardet

Country: Netherlands 🇳🇱

Maude Bardet is a French photographer currently living in the Netherlands. After studying engineering, she first worked in Berlin and then ended up in the Hague, Holland. She always had fernweh - as the Germans say - and invariably construed her jobs as mere tools to finance her travels. Photography was a constant throughout her numerous trips, evolving from mostly architectural to environmental portraits. She discovered street photography in 2017 during a workshop with Nikos Economopoulos in Ghana, and felt like this was exactly what she had been looking for. Meeting Maciej Dakowicz brought her work to a different level – her images are now more complex and carefully composed. Guided by light and textures, she tries to portray a slice of the human condition. She likes to use strong colors to emphasize the compositional elements in her pictures. Her work has emerged mainly through online platforms, particularly Instagram.
