Marta’s analogue photographic practice explores the essence of light, examining the interactions between natural and artificial light with photo-sensitive media. Light becomes a subject matter, a tool and an object of investigation. She seeks to trace movement and the temporality of gestures and physical traces on flat surfaces by creating suggestive and dynamic colours compositions.
