Photographer and visual artist Marcella Martial was quickly attracted to fashion during her training, thanks in particular to an internship at Studio ELLE with renowned photographers. Following the publication of 4 "Humeurs de femme" in the magazine DEALER DE LUXE, the National Assembly ordered a "Marianne noire au cap phrygien" from her. This icon symbolizes the fight against all forms of discrimination against women. In 2011, I received the 2nd Photography Prize for the triptych "Carefree Childhood" at the Salon des Artistes at the Paris City Hall, a thumbs-up to the detractors of Paris Plage.
In 2015, it goes from silver to digital while keeping the Polaroid format. She creates portraits in which an expressive black woman merges with highly colourful French quotations. The same year, she exhibited the diptych "Aie mes yeux ! in the lounge of the Town Hall of the City Hall of Paris and received congratulations from the Mayor of Paris, Anne HIDALGO.
"I make portraits of Muses. It is a dreamlike universe. These Muses are art-mixed works where the imprint of the earth, nature and spirituality merge. Each one of them is unique and original."
