“MAPS brings together various very talented and dedicated professionals who together want to start a new adventure and learn from each other in the process. We are eager to search new interdisciplinary boundaries, collaborations and dialogues. We start this new adventure at a time where the old model of the classical photo agency seems no longer valid, this is the moment we explore new boundaries of what does work and what the public wants.”
