Dutch-Croatian photographer Sanja Marusic’s (1991, Amsterdam) approach towards the medium of photography is both energetic and experimental. Her collages, avant-garde dressed models embedded within futuristic landscapes, create a surreal and alienating effect. The aloof (and sometimes even off focus) themes found within her work, are to some extent mirrored in her character. Sanja deconstructs personalities to rebuild them with photography. Throughout this process, she aims to find and pin point that subtle yet defining element that distinguishes each individual.
Sanja Marusic received the honourable award from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, in 2013, and was nominated in three categories for the Photo Academy Award 2013. In 2009 she received the 1st prize for fashion photography from Elle Magazine, and in 2010 the 2nd prize in fashion photography from Hollands Diep, a public intellectual magazine.
