About

“Marta Blue captures striking portraits of touch, pleasure, and sensuality; her images often focus on hands and faces with delicate obscurity. Drawing on the spark of lust, Marta uses varied accessories such as cups of milk, guns, and beauty accessories, to accentuate her already detailed photographs. “I love to create images that are chromatically strong, defined and at the same time incomprehensible”, asserts the photographer. Marta shoots with intention, placing her subjects and objects directly in front of the viewer. “There is always a story inside every image”, she explains.” iGNANT

“My personal choice among this year’s emerging artists is Marta Blue. Her work appealed to me because it holds one of the most important features of great photography: it makes me ask many questions. The clarity with which the series is imbued makes every photo a small film script, where I can immediately start to imagine the complete storyline.” Roy Kahmann, Lensculture juror. Founder and Owner Kahmann Gallery And GUP Magazine
