German photographer Mirja Maria Thiel is a talented and socially conscious artist who uses her work to tell meaningful stories and raise awareness about important subjects. Thiel's photographs delve into topics she has a personal connection to, such as Alzheimer's disease and the taboo surrounding sexuality and eroticism among the senior population.
Thiel's work is powerful and moving, aiming to bring these critical matters out of the art sphere and into the public eye. Thiel hopes to reach those directly affected by these issues–by means of fostering understanding and inspiring those in power–to bring about change.
Thiel's work has been exhibited and awarded both nationally and abroad.
