Our founder Chantal Kartaram is a marketing professional with a deep love for photography and Suriname. With almost 20 years of work experience in the field of art photography, international advertising & design in Europe, she has led many photography projects. Started out as a photography producer in both advertising and fashion, she quickly moved on to be an agent at a renowned international photographers agency. This experience led her to help start up two art photography projects, that both resulted in international recognition: Before They Pass Away by Jimmy Nelson and Streets of The World by Jeroen Swolfs.
