Maria Svarbova

Slovakia Photographer | Born: 1988
Maria Svarbova was born in 1988 in Slovakia. She finished her university studies of conservation - restoration and archeology. She has dedicated to photography since 2010.

Earlier works of young and talented author, publishing under name Maria Svarbova are resembling a dream like reality with elements of surrealism and Art Nouveau. Her latest photographs focus on delivering a message and triggering feelings with focus on minimalism and purity.

Maria divides her work into two contrasting concepts. The first concept is typical for a great amount of emotions of models and the second for its absence. The second concept was shooted in 2014. Every photograph is chosen among the series which creates stories. There's a larger space captured at the photos, with people acting like figurines. Maria is fascinated by the doll-house look of these series. She took emotions from models and people are static with frozen movement. Atmosphere of the photos is nostalgic and sometimes psychological. Colors that are used the most are pastel with color accent. Realization of the projects is very difficult, there are many assistant on every session (scenographers, architects, make-up artists, models and others).

She is a very distinctive photographer, who can present a vast porfolio of high quality. Maria has also won various prestigious awards and participated in valuable collaborations such as signing off contract with american Vogue.
