Maria Martinez (@femmeexaltee) is a 24-year-old photographer currently based in Madrid. Around two months ago, she started a personal project focused on women, having finished her studies in photography last June. She explained to us a little about her work.

Passion

"I have always felt interest and passion for women in our world, formed from reading the works of Aleksandra Kolontai, Virginia Woolf and Simone de Beauvoir, among others. I've learned much about our past and present as women."

Personal style and technique

"This project was born from my interest in the empowerment of women alongside my photographic studies. I discovered a way of expressing what I feel, defining myself, somehow, in each of my photographs. My technique is very natural. I try to capture with my camera the real beauty that I see with my eyes. And finally my goal is to continue doing what the world so badly needs: art."
