Private Eyes

  • Photographer
    Maartje Brockbernd

Intimate portraits of persons, with an eye disorder. Most of them are consciously ignored by society, have been bullied in the past & became depressed. Others are supported by friends and family to share their story. The purpose is to create more understanding by the public and be able to embrace their eye disorder. To be proud of it instead of hiding it.

The work of Maartje Brockbernd focuses on social issues; capture unseen and ignored realities. The main goal of her projects & assignments is to tell the true story about a person with a special background, without judgment. This can be a subject which involves a larger group of persons or just a small story around the corner. Trying to start the conversation with society, sustain public attention and working towards social change.
