Mafalda Rakoš, born 1994 in Vienna, is a visual artist and photographer based between Berlin, Vienna and The Hague. Her projects are often built around exceptional circumstances such as living within the Middle East Conflict or dealing with an eating disorder and touch upon sensitive societal issues. Also, educated as an anthropologist, she is fascinated by complex patterns. As a human being, she feels a great sense of joy when being close to those she is photographing. Her projects mainly function on a long-term basis and often end up in very special books. Her work was exhibited in various international shows and photo festivals and is regularly published in different editorial contexts.
