Bilbao – 1989
My name is Marina Gondra and my work consists in creating stories throught my images. My camera and Photoshopt are my greatest allies. Photography has been the best hobby I could ever have during my adolescence. I never thought that what I like doing the most in my life could end up being my way of life. Until now. I can say that I dedicate to photography by pure passion, because I cannot live without it, and it would be really difficult being happy without a camera between my hands.
Through my images you could dare to daydream, dive into the best of your dreams or your worst nightmares, and laught again as a child.
Some say that my photographs are childish, and I say to them there’s nothing purer and more creative creative than the mind of a child. I wish we’d never grow up.
I sift through my earliest memories, in the deepest dreams I look for inspiration, and here I show you the result. I hope you live a great adventure through my images!
