Being born on the other side of the world doesn’t mean you can’t talk to each other or understand each other … You have to stay curious about other people, and artists are curious by nature.
Come and join us on a trip to two beautiful cities: Barcelona and Utrecht. And, if you dare, we can finish by going down to the mysterious and emblematic Cairo …
In this interview I talk to Marja Lingsma, photographer of impossible things. The first time I saw Marja’s artwork I was fascinated; the images contained so many details, symbols and surprises. Far from being static, they showed several layers of meaning and action. They were telling stories. I really admire Marja, not only because of her talent, but because she doesn’t shy away from dark and complex subjects such as birth, death and the many mysteries of life itself. We also discuss Marja’s adventures in Egypt, the influence of one’s culture on the creative process and the importance of getting inspired by different artists, no matter what part of the world they come from.
