KATARINA TAMOVA

Bio

Katarina Tamova was born in Bratislava, Slovakia. In 2017 she gained her Master degree in photography at Tomas Bata University in the Czech Republic. Currently, she’s based in London UK. She has exhibited her work in cities all over the world including San Francisco, London, Prague, Evora, Katowice, Ljubljana or Bratislava.

Her personal work is quite extensive but in many ways, her style revolves around creating conceptual projects that explore dream-like and surrealist narratives. From very simple to more complex scenes her work speaks about unspoken mysteries, tense situations and fascination of nature and the human body.

Statement

“My images are very much reflections of my dreams or fantasies. I want to capture mysterious situations. I’m easily infatuated by the power and beauty of light and environment I find myself in. For me, photography is the representation of freedom.”
