Her style of photography is often described as quite dark, with an aspect of beauty or romantic atmosphere.
In her own words: ‘’I see everything with a dark twist. Not many people like it, not many people understand it. What is perceived as dark or controversial is often beautiful to me. There’s something raw and real in dark arts, a piece of an artist’s mind. Their fears, their struggles, their perceptions and opinions… something that they don’t often share openly with the rest of the world. I find it captivating. I find it meaningful. I was always drawn to it, and it fuels my artistic world. I hope that you can find it beautiful through my own work too, as I share a piece of me with you…’’ In her spare time Marta enjoys travelling, exploring and learning about the world and people. She writes a blog and captures her travelling adventures documenting all exciting aspects of it.
