About Maria Rosenblatt

I was born in Russia and currently live in Israel. My relation with art started early in my childhood when I was plunging into the world of music. Growing in a musicians family I started playing violin as a little girl. After many years of studies I became a professional musician and one day decided to expand the boundaries and to find my self-expression in other fields of art and I chose photography. The self-expression that I found there and the possibilities for creativity opened for me the world of art from a different angle. I still play violin and enjoy making music along with working as a photographer specializing in musicians head-shots, animal portraiture and fine art.
For me photography is a way to show to others how I see and feel our world, people I meet, things I encounter, the fantasies I dream, problems I feel need to attract people’s attention to. It is also the way to express myself, to reflect the emotions and thoughts that I have inside. I believe that a good picture that makes a strong impression can have a big influence on the mental and emotional life of the person that is looking at it.
