Evelyn Bencicova is a visual creative specialising in photography and art direction. Informed by her background in fine art and new media studies (University for Applied Arts, Vienna), Bencicova’s practice combines academic research with an interest in contemporary culture to create a unique aesthetic space in which the conceptual meets the visual.
Evelyn’s work is never quite what first appears to be. Her photographs depict meticulously controlled compositions characterised by an aesthetic sterility, tinged with poetic undertones of timeless desire and longing. Evelyn constructs compelling narrative scenarios that blur the lines between reality, memory and imagination, “fictions based on truth”. Her disturbingly beautiful visual language set within curiously symbolic environments, allow for a deep exploration of the themes that take her works far beyond what they reveal at first glance.
While her career started with applied photography, since 2019 the practice shifted towards more immersive and experimental forms of story-telling, through collaborative projects using digital 3D techniques and virtual reality.

I am in love with using natural light based on the high contrast and lot of darkness. For me there are no limits or rules in photography but I feel something very special, strong and mystical between black and white and that’s what I prefer. In fact, once somebody told me:
“If there is something you can not verbalize use photography.“
I think many photographers make their creations in this way. I do.
And what inspires me? Life. People around me. Dreams. Feelings. Senses.
Photographer Ansel Adams described it exactly:
“We don’t make a photograph just with a camera, we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved.”
I am a photographer from Slovakia. I started to shoot fine art nude photos from the beginning, when I got my first digital camera. I like taking photos of people, especially women. I always try to find the best angle and the beauty of the woman in an artistic way.
Photography is a pastime for me, but mainly relaxation. I constantly experiment, noodle something around, and have my head full of new ideas that I attempt to realise. When I look into the viewfinder, the world around me ceases to exist and all my troubles slip away from my mind; I neither hear, nor breathe, just shoot
