In this week’s full post I’m about to present you a photographer and if you think that I post a lot about photography, well, you are right! It’s not that there aren’t enough painters and illustrators exploring the dark side of art, it’s just that photography is one of my favourite mediums, the one that I get not tired of, and that constantly catches my attention.
If you’re looking for more, I highly suggest you to follow Bleaq blog, Jantine does a great job covering a lot of different art forms and currents.
Let’s get back to this week’s feature: Evelyn Bencicova. I often spotted her pictures online, but I never took the time to check her work carefully and, well … I should have done it before!
Evelyn is a young Slovakian photographer, who spends her life between his country, Vienna (where she studies photography and fine art at the University of Applied Arts) and Berlin, a city that she often visits to absorb it’s unique creative vibe.
Although always being a creative individual, she never thought about being a photographer until she had eye surgery. From that moment, as she started to view the world in a different way, she picked up a camera and started to create art with it.
Hes pictures are fascinating and ambiguous at the same time, investigating beauty from different perspectives and points of view. I love to see how she incorporates elements and techniques belonging to fashion and commercial photography into her work, that is way more focused on religious, philosophycal, psychologycal themes (just to name a few).
In this way, she says here, her pictures could be interesting for a wider public; for those interested only in the aesthetic side of photography and for those looking for meaning and messages going behind the mere image.
I love the cold tones of Evelyn’s work, she tends to use a limited palette with one vivid color often popping out, creating a strange aseptic yet very strong atmosphere.
As usual, I think it’s better to let the images speak and after checking the following examples, I strongly encourage you to visit her Tumblr page to have a complete view over her stunning art.
