Take pictures since childhood, looking for may not be left without memories. Before that time forced me to put up signs to name things, places, emotions behind each image. Before the report, finally, is dark.
And I write, do not know why or for whom, probably not to succumb.
I want to see you, and you see me.
I want to see us from the Milky Way.

FEATURED FROM MY FRIENDS | MARTA AND THE SHAPES

:iconmartaraff:

Marta no se considera fotografa. Yo no estoy de acuerdo. Robert Mapplethorpe tampoco lo era: hacia collages, pintura, pero un día le regalaron una camara... Y siguio haciendo arte, pero con un nuevo instrumento.
Marta, antes que nada, y mas importante quizas, es artista. Y fotografa.
Marta no fotografia paisajes, ni personas en estudio, ni arquitectura, ni hace macros. Ese camino ya lo hacen otros: imagenes academicas, perfectamente ejecutadas en cuanto a su composición, tecnica, tratamiento de la luz. Imagenes excelentes, si, pero que en muchos casos no tienen alma. Y que tampoco se recuerdan.
Marta no necesita del dominio absoluto de la tecnica fotografica: el diafragma, el obturador, la profundidad de campo, el balance blancos, las altas luces... Sus fotografias tienen la suficiente fuerza expresiva para que lo anterior sea secundario. En Marta importa la idea, el concepto, la ruptura estetica, la originalidad.
Hay en ella una evolucion constante: desde sus primeras imagenes, donde experimentaba con flores, jabones, elementos cotidianos, en los que el color y la sutileza eran protagonistas. Lo cromatico fue cediendo (o complementando...), poco a poco otra estetica diferente, mas elaborada quizas, que se iba abriendo paso timidamente. Sus fotografias ganan en contundencia. Visualmente impactan: formas, lineas, composiciones rompedoras, toques abstractos, a veces minimalista, pero siempre sugerentes... De la nada, con elementos muy sencillos, Marta es capaz de elaborar una fotografia, que no se sabe si es fotografia, collage, diseño gráfico o un lienzo. Importa el resultado, no el soporte.
De Marta me gusta eso, su capacidad para explorar, para no estarse quieta, y la originalidad.
También me gustaria destacar sus numerosos Featured, que no dejan de ser una extensión de su peculiar forma de entender la fotografia. Con elementos ajenos, organiza composiciones, "sus composiciones". Porque también, de alguna manera, son una obra suya. La obra de Marta es extensa. Me ha costado mucho escoger aquellas piezas que mas me gustan, segun mi personal criterio. Y aqui las muestro a todos vosotros.

Marta does not consider herself a photographer. I disagree. Neither Robert Mapplethorpe did: he made collages, paintings, but one day he was given a camera ... And he continued making art, but with a new instrument.
Marta, first of all, and perhaps most important, is an artist. And a photographer.
Marta does not photograph landscapes, or people in studio, or architecture, or makes macros. That is already made by others: academic images, perfectly executed in terms of composition, technique, treatment of light. Excellent images, yes, but in many cases with no soul. And not remembered, either.
Marta does not need the perfect control of the photographic technique: diaphragm, shutter, depth of field, white balance, highlights... Her photographs have enough expressive power to make the former factors secondary. In Marta the most important thing is the idea, the concept, the aesthetics breaking, the originality.
We find a constant evolution in her work: from her first images, which experimented with flowers, soaps, everyday objects, where the colour and the finesse were protagonists. The chromatic aspect was gradually substituted by a different aesthetic, more elaborate perhaps, which was timidly breaking through. His photographs added forcefulness; they impact from a visual point of view: shapes, lines, groundbreaking compositions, abstract touches, sometimes minimalist, but always suggestive ... She works with very simple elements which seem to appear from nowhere. Martha is able to develop a picture that can´t exactly be described as a photograph, a collage, a graphic design or a canvas. The important thing is the final result, not the support.
About Martha´s work, I like her originality and her ability to explore, not to stand still.
I would also point out her many Featured, that are not but an extension of her peculiar way of understanding photography. With foreign elements, she organizes compositions, "her compositions", because, somehow, they are part of her work.
Marta's work is extensive. I´ve spent a hard time choosing those pieces that I prefer, according to my personal choice. And here I show them to you all.
