Laisa Maria is a photographer and cultural anthropologist from Holland whose work focusses on cultural diversity and humanity with the intention of growing community.
My name is Laisa Maria, I am a Dutch 90s kid based in Rotterdam. In 2015 I obtained a master degree in cultural anthropology, specializing in visual ethnography. I use photography as a way of doing anthropology.The past few years I focussed on building my personal portfolio, which combines ethnographical research with analog photography and writing.
Update: I am currently out of office due to illness until further notice
