I came from Slovakia, but live in England with my family for 10 years. i came to photography by accident in my late twenties. My grandfather was a keen amateur photographer, shooting in black and white, and my grandmother created colour paintings from his photos. This is reflected in the subdued, subtle and tender atmosphere of my favourite pictures. I want to celebrate womanhood and the aspects of feminine beauty, the calm between the smiles. I have a special fascination with photographing the females, allowing the posture and body language to tell its own story. In my pictures, the face is often unseen or only partially visible, meaning the observer can only guess the mood of the subject. I like catching the atmosphere of a moment which will never happen again, where beauty and softness meets pain and sadness.
