Maren Jeleff

living in Austria

I am a photographer and medical anthropologist. I studied Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna and Medical Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam. I did various fieldwork projects, among others for Doctors Without Borders. In 2014/2015 I attended the AnzenbergerMasterclass for Photography in Vienna where I was mentored by Klaus Pichler. One picture of this work was exhibited during the ViennaPhotoBookFestival 2015. Together with other photographers I participated at the Vienna Design Week 2015 in the format “Social Design”. I am intrigued in finding ways to combine the depths of Anthropology with the artistic expressions of Photography.
