The work of Sanja Marusic reminds us of our travels in outstretched, desolate landscapes with bright contrasts and colors. Though human figures appear in almost every frame, the landscape is the real protagonist in her stories. The humans are not being portrayed, but rather used as props. They seem to be unaware of the camera, their bodies coiled in uncomfortable positions or even brought out of focus. Her images suggest the transition between two moments; the in-between shots that most photographers dismiss. It’s actually these images that are esthetically most pleasing.
Marusic won at age seventeen the Elle Photography Award. She graduated as one of the youngest students at the Royal Academy of Arts in the Netherlands with an Honorable Award. Her Work has been exhibited in Moam&Foam Photography Museum and the Unseen Photo Festival in Amsterdam amongst others.
During Artwynwood in Miami this February we will show work of her newest series Figures Under the Sun (2016).
