Marina Profile

I began taking pictures when my first child was born. I was naturally drawn to black and white, which for me brings out the essentials of a portrait: the connection between me and the subject, and the message I want to convey.

Taking photographs is a spontaneous act and the ephemeral nature of childhood through its different stages fascinates me; I want to crystalize moments in time, distill emotions.

When I moved to Jamaica last year, my camera was a shortcut to meeting people, photography a pathway to understanding and sharing people’s experiences and world.

Photography compels me to slow down, to take in the world around me. Experiencing with street photography and environmental portraits in Jamaica opened up a new world, where colours start to find a place in my images.
