初めまして、ヨピス マリナです

Marina Llopis

I am a professional film photographer and a nerd of analogue cameras films.

All my love towards film photography started when my father gave me, at age of thirteen, my first analogue camera. I started playing with it without really knowing how it worked, but every time I used it, I was getting inspired to take more and more photographs. Discovering new artists, I came across Japanese photographers like Ueda Shoji, Honma Takashi or Kawauchi Rinko who deeply captivated me. I fell madly in love with them and Japan that much that at 18, I took my suitcase and went there to study photography.

During my 5 years of stay in Japan, I studied photography at Nagoya Visual Arts College, worked for a photo lab and for IINO Media Pro, a photography studio in Tokyo. All this meant for me a massive cocktail of experiences that allowed me to strength my knowledge of analogue photography and develop a new artistic perception of reality.

I am a person who never believes in coincidences but in causality. That’s why I have always considered that the meaning of this whole journey has been entirely to share it with you.

“You reap what you sow”. If you sow love, you reap love. That’s what my father gave me and my life mission is to give it back to you too.
