Maggie Harrsen is a New York based photographer working closely with the relationship between nature and self.
Harrsens' images explore a consciousness and sensitivity to the Earth, which naturally reflect an ecological awareness and mindfulness to protect the environment. With a soft color palette and intimate subject matter, her approach is one of gentleness. She works to capture the essence and vibration of all living beings and their life energy within.
As a self-taught photographer, Maggie began photographing nature in the Spring of 2008 in Europe as a form of personal healing and meditation. Her expression through photographic studies is profoundly inspired by her travels and study of Shamanism and Energy healing, both deepening her connection to the natural world.
In September 2012 she self-published her first book KANOA, which was featured at the NY Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1, Paris Photo at Le Bal and the LA Art Book Fair at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. More recently, she has self-published Solidago (2013), Earthguide to Wellbeing (2014) and Rio Abajo Rio (2014). Her four books are revered internationally, available at independent bookstores in the USA, Australia, Japan, UK, Germany, France and Belgium.
