‘Way to blue’ visualises a journey of individuals through alienating wide landscapes. While they travel, the landscape transforms: from a dark and mystical place into a more and more surreal, colourful and abstract fantasy world. From grey toclear blue skies.

Dutch-Croatian photographer Sanja Marušić’s approach towards the medium of photography is both energetic and experimental. Her collages, avant-garde dressed models embedded within futuristic landscapes, create a surreal and alienating effect. The aloof (and sometimes even off focus) themes found within her work, are to some extent mirrored in her character.

Sanja deconstructs personalities to rebuild them with photography. Throughout this process, she aims to find and pin point that subtle yet defining element that distinguishes each individual.
