The purpose of a photo is meant to capture a story. These stories can revolve around a person, place or thing, and can evoke a range of emotions from fear, anger, joy, disgust and/or love. This fact is illustrated when two people looking at the same photograph can have two opposing interpretations.
Maria aims for her work to depict a certain level of truth and justice. She hopes to encourage thoughtful conversation through this type of storytelling, as the ideas of truth and justice are always up for interpretation. Her desire is to have her work encourages audiences to think outside of their typical ideas and behaviours.
