Photographer Marina Richter’s work leaves one starry-eyed. Her work appears to be delicate and ephemeral, but with potent, enduring effects. The hazy lighting and warm tones, common in her photographic work, capture a fleeting, deer-in-the-headlights moment, bridging reality with a dream-like world. What navigates us in life? What is looming in the distance? Richter’s photography encapsulates these questions and creates sentimental narratives surrounding them. Her work goes beyond the frame by asking us limitless questions that exceed the concrete and seep into the depths of our individual minds.
