My name is Marina Calahorra, I was born in Girona (Spain) 27 years ago.
During 2012 I started to became interested on photography that’s why I decided to studied a Master of Photojournalism at Autonomus University of Barcelona.
Just when I finished, I decided to move to live to Madrid where I started to cover the demonstrations as a freelance and to make a more long term reports around my country.
I also co-founded OM Colectivo with two other collegues but i'm not in at this time.
On the past year I travelled to Brasil, to take a long term project and this year I spended two month living in Indonesia covering two issues.
I have published in National and International medias as El Pais, El Mundo, Zeith, Tempo, Discovery Channel Magazine… and also collaborated with Getty Images.

LIVING AS MENTAWAI
The Mentawai are an indigenous tribe based in an island west from Indonesia. For years they served themselves of their own habits and under their own ideology until approximately 20 years ago when Christian missionaries arrived to their land suggesting to them to convert into Christianism. They did not try to change Mentwai´s habits unlike a muslem integrist group which has been present in the area for the past year.
A mosque´s construction in the middle of the jungle is only the first step inside their construction plan which aims to develop the island.
Covering their women, dresings up their children, the construction of a school following muslim believes, introducing electricity, offering them motorbikes or mobile phones are only some of their propositions.
