Marietta Varga (Matti) has discovered the potential of artistic expression in photography at a fairly young age.

Her photographs are dream-like and are often drenched in nostalgia. Matti is able to observe everyday moments from an entirely new perspective and to present them unconventionally by taking out of their context. Simultaneously she devotes a lot of attention to create accurate compositions and to choose colours and light very carefully.

The objects and details on her photographs might not seem compatible at first although paradoxically, by the way of using these give a new meaning to the subject and potentially represent the world as she experiences and imagines it.

In the past few years her work has been recognised world-wide numerous times. Thanks to the new releases her artworks can be seen in various photo-books, magazines, publications and art exhibitions.
