Marita Sundhage has been photographing since her first visit to Africa in 1992. She still considers analogue slides to give a greater natural realism than digitial technique (oops, sensitive issue) which is often manipulated to unrealistic sharpness. Photos tend to make us see nature through magnifying glass. Instead she wants to capture nature and its inhabitants the way you see them with your own eyes. Convenience when handling digitial photos nevertheless gives the digital solution precedence. (And yes, she is the little sister of Pia Sundhage who coached the US women soccer team 2008-2012).
