Marit Beer is a self-taught analogue photographer living and working in Berlin/Germany. Her work is mixing surrealism and feminism with a poetic touch.

When I was a child I wished for a hat to make me invisible. I wanted to wander through crowds and listen to their conversations, discover secrets. Later on I wanted to be like the angel Damiel in “Wings of Desire”. There is a scene in which he is sitting next to people in the U- Bahn and listening to their thoughts. I am looking for transitions – from what we believe we are, what others see in us and what we dream or fear. This feeling is what I try to capture. Sequences that reveal nothing but evoke something which lures deep inside of us.
