Maja Daniels (b. 1985, Sweden) is a photographic artist whose work can be described as a multi-layered academic and artistic practice that includes photography, sociological methodology, sound, moving image and archive material. With a background in sociology, Daniels’ art explores themes of human relations, identity and self in a contemporary Western context. Intimate and detail-focused, her previous projects include documentation of the daily experiences of Alzheimer’s patients and stylised portraits of glamorous Parisian twins in Monette & Mady. Daniels latest project, Elf Dalia, came about upon moving to the remote Swedish town of Älvdalen. Interweaving folklore with archival material, she explores her familial connection to the community. Elf Dalia is published by Mack Books.

Combining myth and archive, Elf Dalia begins a conversation between past and present that challenges the perception of photography as document.
