Evelyn Bencicova
Photographer

Evelyn Bencicova, born in Bratislava, Slovakia, is a visual creative specializing 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 characterized by an aesthetic sterility, tinged with poetic undertones of timeless desire and longing. Bencicova constructs compelling narrative scenarios that blur the lines between reality, memory and imagination – “fictions based on truth.”

Employing multifaceted symbolic representations as illusions, Evelyn plays with the viewer’s perception to entice them into the secret labyrinth of her imagination. Her disturbingly beautiful visual language and washed-out color palette, set within curiously symbolic environments, allow for a deep exploration of the themes that take her images far beyond what they reveal at first glance.

Evelyn’s commercial and artistic work have featured in the likes of Vogue Portugal, Vogue Czechoslovakia, Vogue Korea, ZEIT Magazine, The Gentlewoman, ELLE, Dazed & Confused, GUP, HANT and Metal Magazine. Her work has been published in prestigious international photography books and on several online platforms such as Juxtapoz, iGNANT, Fubiz media, and she has participated in solo and group exhibitions across Stockholm, London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Milan, Amsterdam, Prague and Rome.

In 2016, Bencicova received the prestigious Hasselblad Masters and Broncolor GenNext awards. She was also shortlisted and awarded by LensCulture, Independent Photographer, Gomma Grant, Life Framer and OFF Festival. Her fashion film Asymptote (2016), co-created with Adam Csoka Keller, received the Best New Fashion Film award at the Fashion Film Festival Milano 2017, and was featured at SHOWstudio Fashion Film Awards, the Austrian American Short Film Festival and at Diane Pernet’s A Shaded View on Fashion.

    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International
    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
