Ulla von Czékus (Salvador, BA, Brazil). From her mother she inherited the pleasure and fascination for the cultivation of plants. Influenced by her father – an amateur photographer who loved to produce images of family moments –, since childhood, she grew close to the visuality of photography. As an adult, she combined these two actions to reflect on the transformation of life itself. She explores, in her works, not only studio images of the universe of botany, but also a conversation between the indelible characteristic of time and the impermanence of human life - identical to the leaves, fruits, and seeds she photographs. Today, her work focuses on thinking about life as a continuous experience in the face of its resplendence and, at the same time, of its marked ephemerality.
