Primarily self-trained, Maggie Meiners has had a passion for photography since her childhood and has been shooting photos since 2000. Her work focuses on documenting the beauty, complications, emotions and surprises of everyday life.
She sees form and art in something most people would not, and brings it to light in a photograph. It doesn’t necessarily matter what the subject is, but whether or not it is open for interpretation. She has the ability to give new information and provide the viewer with insight into a quality that they cannot ordinarily experience. Maggie’s compositions are direct, to the point of appearing minimal, while her subject matter, conversely discloses significant complexity. In all of her projects, she challenges herself to push technical norms and include compelling and thought provoking images.

Maggie’s work has most recently been seen as part of the Chicago Project-Catherine Edelman Gallery, the Anne Loucks Gallery in Glencoe and is currently up at HBF Textiles in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. She has also exhibited at various museums and colleges around the country. Maggie’s work is included in numerous public and private collections including, Harrison Street Lofts, Wheaton College, and the Illinois Institute of Art.

Maggie currently serves on the Board of the Filter Photo Festival, is a member of the Advisory Committee at the Museum of Contemporary Photography and is the Founder of Co-Star Collective.

Maggie grew up outside of Chicago and continues to have her work regularly featured at galleries, executive offices and private collections.
