Martina Mijić MAFphotoMarta Martina Mijic: I was born in Travnik, a small town located 90 km west from Sarajevo, and I spent my childhood interchangeably in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, as well, Germany. Since 2007, I am based in Zagreb where I founded an association, MAF that affects many art fronts. Photography (MAFphoto), painting, and creation of unique organ decorations are some of the things that I am involved with.

My first independent painting exhibition, symbolically named “My Story” was in Travnik (Bosnia and Herzegovina) 2005. I presented 66 paintings done in various techniques. I also participated in numerous group exhibitions, courses, and workshops.

“As an artist, I am oriented towards abstract art. The artist world is full of color, but my photography shows the opposite, the black and white world”
Marta Martina Mijic

My first independent photography exhibition, named “Voyage, part I, Light and Darkness”, has been presented in Belgrade (Serbia) in 2010, at the Center for Photo and Film Culture of Serbians.

ExtraImaginary: Please give us a background of yourself and your photography.

I was born in Banja Luka, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in 1959, and that’s where I got my degree in Law, back in 1986. As far as photography goes, I started taking pictures in high school and contined through my time in the University, since it was always a very important hobby of mine (if you could even call something you take as seriously and dedicate as much time to, a mere hobby). I moved to Zagreb during the nineties, where I live now, and after a pause, I started actively involving myself in photography again in 2000, this time working with digital cameras. I joined the local Photography club and later became a member of the Croatian photographers’ association, and started exhibiting my photographs, both independently and in group exhibitions. These included independent exhibitions in Canada in 2008, and Zagreb in 2009 and 2010.
