Jury's Feedback

  • Judged by: Sanja Marusic

    Dutch-Croatian photographer Sanja Marušić received her first camera at the age of fifteen. Two years later she got into the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Netherlands and in 2013 she graduated with an Honourable Award.

    Marušić travels the world to create otherworldly images. Her experimental approach to colour, composition, materials and manipulations lead to dreamlike, cinematic yet alienating scenes, playing with our relation to the subconscious.

    Sabja Marušić is a member of The Independent Photographer’s community of artists and her work has been widely exhibited and published in international magazines such as The New York Times, Elle, Kalutbult, Vice and GUP Magazine.
