About

 

Iris Maria, photographer, based in Bucharest, Romania. I think of myself as an observer, driven with passion and a dash of madness. I am always searching for the perfect place, perfect timing, precise shot. I tend to be a perfectionist. 

I shoot mainly with digital cameras and use a Fujifilm XT3 currently, but I also experiment with Polaroid cameras and analog – Cannonet QL17.
