Lucia Giri is self-portrait artist born in Slovakia and in 2011 she stepped for the first time to the world of colors, fragrances, music and tastes, to India, that became her new home.
After 15 years of expressing herself through art of belly dance she was no longer able to show her soul to people from the stage. The medium of her expression changed as she felt in love with all the creative works that photography desires.
Long before capturing the image, Lucia enters into process of creation, making her own props and researching about the use of symbols and colors in different cultures.
Lucia is an artist in her heart and creatively looks through the world.
Her work is always the reflection of her soul and medium for healing.
Often she uses herself as a model.
She loves to use the old unwanted objects, turn them into beauty and repurpose them.
Her surreal and whimsical worlds accompany the raw realities. Images full of symbolism are built on the themes of existence, birth, reincarnation, black and white magic, beauty and rawness of our being.
Lucia believes that the discomfort that she creates in the viewers opens the path for the new communication, unlocks the mind and allows the growth.
Her photos have their own personal stories but give the viewer space to read them through their own experiences.
