Maya Baghirova was born in 1993 in Baku. Maya went to secondary school in the Gymnasium of Art in the year 2001. She also spent part of her life in Israel where she studied high school. After coming back to her home town she began to feel everything had changed around her and didn't feel herself. She wasn't familiar with her new life moving back home and realised photography is where she found her passion. In 2011 she attended the Academy of Music where she continued her first profession for music and playing the violin. Maya started her photography career while working at the Mugham Centre and is currently working for Nargis magazine as a freelance photographer. Maya believes humans need nature, beauty and love to feel. She prefers B&W photos as she thinks they capture the reality inside. Currently, Maya is based in Paris where she has been studying at Speos International Photography school since 2017.
