Conceptual | It starts with a question or an idea
Photography that illustrates an idea or a story. That can be your story as a person, company or brand. A photographic image that tells exactly what you had in mind. As a carrier of emotion, as decoration, as a way to convey information, or as visual support.
Maartje Roos her narrative images are all manifestations of creating a new reality. This makes her demand the utmost of her creativity. An image always starts with a picture in her head. That picture will be transferred into a photo. This is not only a matter of quickly taking a photo; it is a long term process in which she is in charge of everything. Location, models, clothing, lighting, shooting and editing are all part of the process. She often creates one photo out of multiple photos, using the digital palette and her ability to empathize. She adds and omits, balancing on registering and directing a photo. What remains is her image. Reality or fantasy, that is hard to tell.
