Her name is Maria Louceiro. She lives in Berlin and works with design, art direction and photography – and she makes some of the most stunning pieces we’ve seen in a minute! “I enjoy using photography to convey certain moods, ideas, aesthetics. Through image making, I hope to imagine an alternative world that sparks intense emotions and ideas,” Maria tells us. 

“Initially, I started going to concerts to take my dream photos without the need for a studio. All the conditions were there: the people, the action, a set and professional lighting. As time went by, I needed more control over how I was shooting. I went from live concerts to portraits of musicians. What a better way to portray their music than mixing the feelings it conveys in a more intimate way than just a stage? In the future I’m focusing on diversity of subjects and stories beyond music. I aim to focus on female identifying stories – searching for new faces, new adventures.”
