About me
Mariam is a photographer and creative director specialising in portrait, fashion and editorial imagery. She aims to create art and visuals in a way that hasn't been done before and creates imagery that is honest, vibrant and full of elements of life, nature and colour, which is exactly how she is being inspired to live life. Nature is the palette from which we draw every single possible colour from which is often where she tends to produce most of her visual works.
