Marlen Asabina

Photographer & director, co-founder of MADWOMEN

What drives you?
Creativity, sudden ideas, other inspiring women, my own restlessness when I’m doing “nothing”.

The best advice you’ve ever gotten?
Care less about what other people might think of you.

What are you learning right now that you’re not so good at yet?
Also having days where I don’t do anything productive. And I’m experimenting with AI in combination with my photography.

What would you change if you had the power to do so?
Where to start. I think I would start by trying to get the climate crisis under control.

Which superheroine power would you like to have?
Teleportation, always! Or the ability to communicate with all living beings (humans and animals).
