Margi Geerlinks

Margi Geerlinks (born 1970) is a Dutch photographer.

Born in Kampen, Overijssel, Geerlinks lives and works in Rotterdam.[1] She graduated from the Rietveld Academy in 1991, the Art Academy Constantyn Huygens in 1995, and the Masters Program at the Sandberg Institute in 1997.[2] Her work is described as being "concerned with the ways the human species creates an identity for themselves, and the forces that seem to govern this process",[3] and she digitally manipulates her photographs to achieve the desired effect.[4]

A 1999 work by Geerlinks, Untitled, is owned by the Mint Museum.[5] Her photograph Eve II was donated to the National Museum of Women in the Arts by Heather and Tony Podesta.[6] The museum also owns the 2001 work Living Dolls, which was formerly in the collection of the Corcoran Gallery of Art.[7]
