Michaela Skovranova
Photographer

Michaela Skovranova is an Australian based filmmaker, photographer, director and Olympus Visionary. You won’t find much in the way of bright colours in her photos but while desaturated, her images are dripping with emotion, drama and a certain respect for the duality between beauty and raw power that exists in the ocean and nature. Originally from Slovakia, Michaela moved to Australia where her focus shifted to documentary and underwater capture. Since then, she has amassed a variety of awards including being named on Photo Boite’s list of 30 Under 30 Women Photographers. Her short films pick up the natural, ambient-lit storytelling where the images leave off.

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis.
