Grounded empath & free-spirited seeker; human nature disciple & soulful healer, Marta is much more than a photographer, artist and creative director. ICONBOOTH has been her signature Dubai installation where she adorns subjects with trinkets from far-flung corners of the Earth.

You have a mantra: “It can be uncomfortable yet at the same time beautiful to connect with strangers.” Is this how your ICONBOOTH installation was conceptualised, through talking to strangers?
Look, it’s obvious you see inner magic in every soul, is this one of your gifts? Making people see it for themselves?
Is there a point in your life when you said to yourself, “I am devoting myself to Art”?
