PASSION, CHEMISTRY and POWER, That is how you can describe my photos in three words.
Marjon Broeks, (Amsterdam 1963) autodidact, has been interested in photography from an early age. During her younger years, she gathered inspiration from growing up between her father’s numerous black and white style photos and magazines. Marjon started with travel and street- photography during her trips to India and the Middle east. Later she became specialized in Theater-photography, specifically focussing on Flamenco and Sufi performances. Marjon’s objective when working is to capture the emotion and passions displayed by the artists and to be the link between the artists, the audience and the outside world. In Marjon’s own words "To capture a magic moment on stage is pure happiness". Marjon's photos capture the passion of the performers, highlighting the aesthetic, the purity, intensity and chemistry between the artists and in one on one shoots.
Apart from her work in theater-photography, Marjon also regularly provides photos for websites, flyers or CD covers of different artists and musicians. She also does photoshoots for companies as KLM and makes (family)portraits.
Sources of inspiration are Bruce Weber, Anton Corbijn, Maria Austria, Robert Doisneau.
Marjon has had various expositions. She photographed and wrote for Flamenco magazine 'Mundo Flamenco'. You can see her work in cafe Duende in Amsterdam.
