Merel Huisink (NL, 1991) lives and works in Amsterdam as a fine art photographer. After completing the study of Art and Design, she studied at the University of the Arts in Tilburg and afterward at the University of Applied Photography in Amsterdam. In 2017, she published her photo series ZEN as a book.

In her work, the starting point is the origin of existence. She translates life experiences in metaphorical and poetic images of elements from nature. Huisink’s work is the reflection of her feelings and thoughts, which encourages the viewer to philosophize about the soul. Her recent work Spirit of Nature is focused on the aura of nature.
