A Minute with … Marina Angeli Photographer/Social Media Content Creator


Where do you live and with whom?
I currently live in Nicosia with my partner, but I come from Pera Chorio.

What did you have for breakfast?
Cereal. And a cup of black coffee!

Describe your perfect day
A perfect day starts with a road trip. A long road trip, exploring, stopping for a photoshoot of course, because, hey, who doesn’t get inspired by the beautiful views? A model, some props and then create a great fairy-tale shot. Then end up with a campfire somewhere with music and drinks and lots of stories to tell. Don’t forget the bedtime book!

Best book ever read?
Oh, I’m a book worm so that’s really a tough question. But I have to say that I love Tolkien’s writing. He is one of my favourite writers. The way he created his own language, world, stories is just fascinating!

Best childhood memory?
Travelling with family especially in Vienna and playing Super Mario with my sister. It was a great exercise in patientce!
What is always in your fridge?
Strawberry jam.
What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Symphonic and Power metal for now! As a rock/metal fan I enjoy most of it but I also love some folk and classical music.

What’s your spirit animal?
An owl. Wise, with lots of knowledge, has witnessed many events and loves the night.

What are you most proud of?
I’m proud of what I have achieved so far in photography. I’m proud of getting out of my comfort zone and choosing the unknown to achieve greater things in life.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, the fight scene and then when Viktor finds out that Sonja is pregnant with Luciant’s baby. The emotions are so intense there, when war and hatred overcome the love and unity between Lycans and Vampires.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Freddie Mercury. This guy was not just a legend on stage but also seemed a great human being!

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
Renaissance era mostly. When literature, philosophy, music, science, Gothic art and even technology were blooming and then ancient Greece in order to witness it to its full glory.

What is your greatest fear?
Balloons. Yeap, my parties could have been a lot more decorative!

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
Never compromise. Study a lot and always fight for what you love and who you want to be. Soak up as many memories and experiences as you can. To be an artist is a blessing!

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
Lies and ignorance.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would have taken as many photos as possible, print them and posted them in as many streets as possible. People always need to remember the beauty of our world and humanity. Then just give EVERYONE a big hug!
