2018 Head On Associate Exhibitor Marina Zivkovic Exhibits Outstanding Creativity
Portraiture is Marina's lifelong passion. "If I can create a portrait that draws the viewer in without understanding why, then I have succeeded to communicate in a way that is beyond a simple snapshot".
“Photography is so important, and the lifelong memories and heirloom quality of passing down a portrait through generations is too often overlooked.”
“The ability to consciously print photographs with archival quality for the purpose of passing them down through the generations in a way we never could before, is reason enough to go out and make a portrait of yourself today - do it for those who come after you who may want to see who you were - and a good portrait photographer can capture your soul for your future generations to really see you and feel like they knew you somehow,” Marina said.
“With portraits, it has to be about more than just sit there and let me snap you. It has to be about capturing a person's true essence. A photograph that you can't stop looking at but don't know why is my kind of photograph.”
Marina Zivkovic is an Emerging AIPP Professional Photographer specialising in fine art portraiture with a number of awards and accolades to her name in the very short time she has picked up a camera. From publications in the 2017 Capture Annual alongside Australasia's top photographers to currently being listed in their top ten Emerging Student photographers. Marina has won multiple awards for her fine art portraiture.
She admits to being “stunned” by the honour of receiving industry awards.
“I am so deeply humbled to see my work beside some of the greatest Australian photographers that I deeply admire,” Marina explained.
