MARISKA KARTO, 1971, 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 deepest feelings. 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 the viewer a fusion of dark/misterious atmosphere along with the impression of being inside her photos feeling, dreaming and weating for a better time to come
