Merel Hart was born in France (1971) and raised by Dutch parents.
She took an interest in the arts quite early in life, spending hours drawing and painting as a child. Before taking a more serious interest in photography, she first studied Political Science and English at the University of Nanterre (Paris) and worked in the publishing world.
For the last fifteen years, she has collaborated with a wide range of clients, both editorial and commercial, and she has also been pursuing a more personal work on the theme of youth that she has exhibited in Belgium as well as abroad.
Her photography, tender and honest, focuses on people and their emotion.
“I always like to observe people. They fascinate me: the way they talk, the way they are dressed, how they hide or show their emotions…”
She lives in Brussels with her two children.
