Mei was born in Amsterdam in 1999. In 2016 she started studying autonomous photography at the Willem the Kooning academy, since then she lives in Rotterdam.
In 2016 Mei got in touch with photo archives for the first time. She inherited 7 boxes of her grandma, which were filled with family pictures and documents. Mei was curious about her family history, so dived into the boxes. This was the start of a series of projects, which discuss Mei’s background and the value of images and archives.
