Welcome to

Maria Sees the World!

About Maria


I am Maria Ricciardi and I am a photographer and a storyteller.

 I started adding my journal entries to the photos I take to share my adventures and experiences one photo at a time. At the end of the day, you will be able to walk the same path I did through my visual storytelling. I love to travel and experience new things, meet new people, and photograph the world. Supporting local economies, conservation of wildlife, and environmental sustainability are incredibly important to me, and what I am conscious of as I explore. I hope to enhance your experience of travel through the stories I share through my photo journal and take you on a journey of visual wanderlust. My goal is to live authentically, bravely, and with gumption...with my camera in hand.
