'Myth of The Cave'
The idea behind "Myth of The Cave" was to explore lights, shadows and blurs of anonymous individuals. My intention was to portrait the feeling of detachment within concrete spaces, and to raise unsolvable questions: where do we fit inside this urban landscape? Are we trapped in our own caves? Where are we going? How do we escape?
Marina is a Brazilian photographer currently based in London, UK. She has been experimenting with street/fine art photography for a couple of years, and she is constantly learning and developing her vision through her lenses.
The series “Chasing Ghosts” was created during the last lockdown. In hindsight, I think my intention was to search for glimpses of life - a child, a dance, a beam of light somewhere. We were all passing through these cold and lonely days, but there is still hope. Even in desolated scenarios, beautiful things happen.
China Vietnam border
A small mountain village on the border of China and Vietnam, a small village, a group of happy, angry and sad people, here or there, in the past, or in the future, in reunion, or separation, in the flowing water days, passed away. Interesting souls, interesting personalities and interesting individuals are interwoven with interesting stories. In this border village primary school, Xiahua primary school, too many things have changed and many things have remained unchanged.
