Myka Baum's practice is concerned with the fragility of nature and how we have become so disconnected from both nature and our animal being. 
The work is largely informed by her deep engagement with and close observation of nature, ’feeling her way intellectually into the inner heart of a thing to locate what is unique and inexpressible in it’ (Henri Bergson). There is a fascination with the processes of growth and decay and to make tangible their ephemeral nature. 

Myka comes from a background in Operations Management and studied Fashion Product Management. She went on to study Photography at Central Saint Martins followed by Postgraduate Study in Print at Royal College of Art.

Her Lunar Mare series was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2009. Other key exhibitions included Café Park Gallery, Brighton Photo Fringe, Photofusion, Cornerhouse, APT gallery amongst others in the UK. Internationally, Myka has  shown in New York, Barcelona, Cologne and Milan.

Myka grew up in Münster, Germany and lives and works in London.
