Barbara Marstrand (b. 1994) is a self-taught photographer based in Copenhagen with a background in sociology. She explores social life through aesthetics to create rich visual narratives that make us reflect upon our ways of being in the world today. Focusing on the interaction between people and materiality, she examines the boundaries of what is considered worthy of seeing, portraying, and relating to.

Marstrand's work is characterized by thorough research, drawing inspiration from sociology, philosophy and history of art, as well as visual artworks and popular culture. She brings a reflexive approach to photography, combining realism and fiction within a conceptual tradition of still life.

In 2023 she published her first photo book ‘Still Life of Teenagers’ with Danish publisher Disko Bay. The book explores the lives of Danish youth through photographs of their bedrooms.
