Spotlight | Marta Blue
Marta Blue is an art director and creative director situated in Milan.
When and how did your journey as an artist begin?
I started photographing about ten years ago, but in less than one year I learned to create what I feel. This is very important for me because my emotions and my feelings are the basis of what I produce now.
What camera(s) do you prefer to use?
The type of camera has never been too important for me, I photograph something every day and in fact most of the time I use the easiest and fastest way, an iPhone or Yashica minitec. Otherwise, mostly use my heavy Canon 5D markII.
What is your greatest source of inspiration?

What artists in your field have influenced your work?
