"i was burned on a certain mars. know i'm a leaf and like autumn fall, i'll dye."

MariekeZapasnik is an independent Helvetic-British photographer, born in the Netherlands,and grew up here and there in Europe.

Through the travels that have shaped her life, and the cultures that coexist within her,and sometimes clashes, she developed a natural curiosity for others and developed a prism, via which she sees the world and allows her to enrich herself.

This curiosity has led her towards photography and photo documentary. With this medium, she wishes to connect with people, different cultures, different realities, to expose herself and expose it to the world.

Today, she is working extensively on the issue of women and femininity in our societies. She wishes to further develop these works.

Since 2017, she has found and become a member of several collectives with whom she creates and organizes exhibitions and cultural events in alternative and third places to engage with the public and create a dialogue between her work and people.

She currently lives in Paris.
