Mariska Karto is a American photographer/illustrator born in Suriname, South-America and raised in Holland. Mariska Karto started her artistic photography in 2010 with the urge to express her inner world. She mainly inspired by the old world (loving 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 tell 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.
If everything is too much, if the feeling overflows, a new dimension exists. In this dimension Mariska shoots her visual storytelling photographs.
