Maria Meco is a UK based Spanish photographer. Her practice began while she was studying Media and Communication in her home country and continued in and out of formal education. She recently graduated from the Photography BA at UWE, Bristol.
Having being shortlisted and interviewed for the Portrait of Britain, Creative Review or Aesthetica Mag Maria's work is also being selected finalist for the Palm Photo Prize 2021. Alongside her personal projects, Maria is currently working as a freelance photographer and assists Esther May Campbell with Photographic workshops for children.
"Her images sits somewhere between fiction and reality, and comes with a slightly haunting quality. Shape and shadow dance eerily in x-ray style images, or grainy black and white photographs of children and dogs that seem plucked from another time. Even the more overtly joyful moments she captures are imbued with a subtle nostalgia for lost summers."
