''I love the simplicity and minimalism in this photo, but what I like the best is the concept and a great connection between subjects. Mariola’s pictures are absolutely impressive. What I like about her style is creativity, she is such an inspiration for many photographers. Her pictures stand out from others and I can recognize her signature style from among others togs. Her imagination has no boundaries and it always brings photography on a new level. Keep up good work, Mariola, you are one of the best!''
