Marie Hald


“Marie Hald is working thoroughly with projects about women and their relationship to beauty and the female body. Her work is very intimate and personal, both with reportage stories and portraits. Even though she has received prizes and her work has been published and exhibited, she deserves a larger recognition for her work focusing on important gender issues.”-

Søren Pagter, Denmark, photojournalism department head The Danish School of Media and Journalism,
