“Time to stand and stare: continuing my journey”
Vanda Ralevska is a photographer based in London. She is passionate about landscape photography, always searching for those fleeting moments of magic that transform our world into something extraordinary. She finds inspiration in quiet scenes and the intimate detail that abounds in nature. In her images she strives to reflect the atmosphere, feeling, and sheer wonderment that our natural world can evoke within us. For her photography is more than just a recording of where she has been. It is about encompassing the whole experience of being in the outdoors, and trying to capture that one special moment that leaves a lasting impression on us.
Her images and articles have been published in magazines and exhibited in the UK and abroad. Vanda has been awarded “highly commended”, “commended” and second prize in the annual International Garden Photographer of the Year competition. She is also a member of the Arena Photographers and Landscape Collect UK and is a co-founder of Landscapes by Women, an online community connecting women landscape photographers all over the world.
In her talk Vanda will discuss several projects she has recently been working on, the challenges she has encountered and how they helped her develop her work, the way she sees things and her outlook on photography and life in general.
A quote from Vanda –
“For me photography is about the beauty that surrounds us that quite often we don’t realise is there. The beauty that we can see if we care to look; and sometimes the camera helps us along the way.”
