It was Maria Sturm’s series ‘Marseille‘ that stood out for me whilst browsing her website the other day. I am instantly attracted to projects that have a place or a country in its title. I want to see how such a place can be interpreted and I enjoy the feeling I get when looking through those images. For Maria it is clear by looking at all her works that she engages strongly with new people and I’m sure every trip she embarks on she has the ability to encounter special people to photograph, a gift that some photographers just have. I also really enjoyed her series ‘Common & Uncommon Places‘.
