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

MariekeZapasnik is a helvetico-british documentary photographer, born in thenetherland, raise here and there in europe.

she swings inbetween medium, digital and analog, colours and black and white, depending onthe subject, the people, the language needed, cause every story is different,as is the way to tell them.

she firstbegan to document her life, to now extend her work beyond herself, beyond hercomfort zone.

in 2017 shecame out with her diploma from a photographic school in Paris.

curiouslike a cat of places, people and their stories, she likes to listen to it, thosewho has been lived, and those who are invented.

in her eye,she tries to capture social questions that struck her and the shape andform of things and people

she isbased somewhere in Paris
