A Selection of Works by Marcia Filz
I began to photograph with continuity 10 years ago during my fourth year of studies in Plastic Arts and since then it has become the greatest of my passions. I currently work as a professional photographer and teacher; in spite of that, I am constantly learning about photography as a form of expression. Marcia Filz
I photograph landscapes, small everyday scenes and people, including myself. In my photographs I seek to reveal a state of mind through colors, shapes and the way in which light relates to environments.
For my personal work I shoot analog because I enjoy the uncertainty of the different processes that are needed to reach an image: from the choice and loading of the roll, going through the moment of photographing and not seeing the result immediately, until the moment of copying or scanning of the negatives.
A little over a year ago I began to venture into alternative (some old) copying processes such as the blueprint or Van Dyke, and in the subsequent intervention on the copies with different techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, etc. At the same time, with a group of photographer colleagues, we began to investigate and make copies with the wet collodion process.
Teamwork, research and development of different techniques and the influence of my hours of reading and listening to music are my greatest motivation and inspiration when generating photographs.
