Mariska Karto is a photographer/illustrator born in Suriname (South-America) and raised in Holland
She started her artistic photography in 2010 with the urge to express her innerworld.
What started as a urge to express her innerworld, is meanwhile mainly inspired, by the old world (she loves the magic of the old and dusty world), the magic of woman and the struggle of human emotions.
A part of her work is translated in visuals from dark to bright.
Human feeling is the key that inspires her, human development related to spirituality is also an important factor.
Her images tells about stories of a world deep within us. They show us a dark world and secret atmospheres, but they also show us a dreamy mood of a tender and soft dreamworld.
