Free-spirited, wildhearted expressionist Marisa Papen photographed in St Barth’s. We love her mission statement on her website
“It's my goal to take you with me to my own world, the 'Island' as I'm labeling it.
It is a place where people are part of Nature itself,
Where they shouldn't be afraid to express who they really are,
Where they stay true to their own instinct,
Where you can be authentic pure, and uncorrupted by society.
Basically a naked form of freedom where masks are torn off and thrown in the ocean.
My method to show you what my 'Island' is all about is showing you throughout my series of pictures, my videoclips and of course my Stories.
You lead by example they say, so I want you to understand what it is I'm trying to accomplish. Finding the bigger picture and opening up.
Because I believe you can make a difference if you really want to.
For now I'm based in Belgium, but I'll be tiptoeing throughout the world to show you how beautiful 'the Island'-way of life can be.
Feel free to join my journey :)
