Marta Marta AM - Pîncota

Back to black (and white) with this female spanish photographer born in 1976 and whose real name is Marta Altares Moro. Her iconography is (at least in the selection of images I did) in the Anders Petersen style, with very contrasted and close-up images of human skin in a naturalistic and unsophisticated approach. It's rough and powerful. It's a way to use photography not to euphemize the reality but to use it in an impressionism manner, visually translating our deepest feelings of horror or fascination into pictures that become like iconic images. I added her skull at the end cos' skulls are my little guilty pleasure. Her flickr blog here. Did not find any site.
