Maja Topčagić is a talented freelance photographer from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, who began taking photos when she was 19 years old and was given her first digital camera. Maja captures fabulous redheaded womens to reveal the beauty of people with freckles in her stunning portrait series. She has a degree in mathematics and computer sciences.
I find inspiration everywhere I go. I imagine moments frozen and captured by the camera. Also, I write down my dreams. Sometimes an idea bumps me in the head, but mostly I find inspiration looking at the world through my eyes. It’s often something interesting, weird and extraordinary. My work is inspired by movies, books, music, videos, ordinary people and conversations too.
The fact is that I do not look at the world like others, I’m a mix of mathematics and art – as others assume. For me, mathematics is an art too. Everything that we see in nature, we can mathematically describe and write using photography. Math and art are soulmates, and using these very natural things for a human being we can describe our world and our mind.
