Margrieta Jeltema | Milan, Italy

Short bio…

Assisting my father in his darkroom on the attic of the house where we lived when I was a child, was always a magical event. Since that time the feeling of wonder and expectation that are part of film and chemicals never left me. I travelled and lived all over the world with my husband and three sons,  photography enables me to create a world where I really belong.

You shoot film because…

I love the tactile experience, the use of chemicals, the discoveries and experiments it invites me to. It gives a visual depth unparalleled by digital photography.

Your photography feels like…

traveling, exploring, creating a garden and a home, feeling alive and in love.
