Maja Karen Hansen is a Copenhagen based conceptual photographer who features people as her main subject matter. To quote Hansen, she believes that “Art should disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed”.

Her photographs are bold, very visually pleasing and also thought provoking. Her subject matter is very clean and focused. There is the foreground with the model, and then there is a minimalist background. Her work has a  very bold, finest like nature with great focus on the model, who is conveying her concept in the photograph.
