Bratislava, Slovakia-based fine-art photographer Maria Svarbova loves to create compositions that touch our feelings with unusual scenarios. In her latest series entitled Lost in the Valley, Svarbova photographed female models in desert landscapes with a sweet set of apparel and colors; creating a distressful and, at the same time, an attractive atmosphere.
“Her photographic work moved from traditional portraits to capture wider topics, generating works with unmistakably characteristic atmosphere. Adressing the loneliness and isolation of contemporary life, her work manages to be both non-sentimental and emotionally powerful. Cool stillness, striking color palette and unspoken tension of Maria’s artwork led to international recognition, including photographs published in The Guardian, or displayed on the famous Taiwanese landmark, 101 skyscraper.” – Maria Svarbova.
