HELLO! I AM MARIJA.
I AM WORKING WITH VISUAL CONTENTS, PHOTOGRAPHY, COLLAGE AND VIDEO WHERE I'M FOCUSED ON COHERENCE BETWEEN IMAGE AND SOUND. I AM COMING FROM BELGRADE AND THE PAST FOUR YEARS I AM LIVING IN LYON.
For a several years I have been working as a designer of my clothing brand ROMI SCHNEIDER (2012-2017) where I started my journey into the world of fashion and visual communication, while working on branding, visual identities and the concept itself.
As time is passing, due to my focus on the social epoch we live in, I am constantly opening a new questions and I am changing my approach to the pictures and the photography itself. Every new work is bringing to me the new ideas that are crossing each other. Most often I am interested in the contextual meaning of the picture.
I am taking a photo camera and using it, sometimes to take just what I see in front of me, sometimes to create composition which came in my mind, and sometimes I manipulate with the both.
Not leaving traditional forms of expression, but certainly not rejecting modern ones, even in a complex relation with new age styles and forms, I embrace modernity as a moment of life where I am and where I exist. I am not stooping in a one place, I don’t look only in one direction, I am moving on, I flirt with possibilities, I take risks and driven by mistakes I am creating surprises and living life like this.
End of the ideas that comes to me does not exist, and I am open to research and explore them, as for fashion potential achievements, as well as for personal art projects. Somehow, I am in between, where personal always prevails and does not leave any side I dived in.
I invite you to try to dive here with me.
