“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
My name is Vanda Ralevska and I am a photographer based in London. I am passionate about capturing the world we live in, always searching for those fleeting moments of magic that transform it into something extraordinary.
I find inspiration in the sea and its infinite power and uncontrollable energy, in quieter scenes and intimate details that abound in nature. In my images I strive to reflect the atmosphere, feeling, and sheer wonderment that our natural world can evoke within us. For me photography is more than just a recording of where I have 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.
My images and articles have been published in magazines, exhibited in the UK and abroad and have received awards in international competitions.
I am a member of Arena Photographers – a collective based in the south of England, World Women Art – an international group of women artists, and Échiquier – an international collective of photographers.
Aside from photography I enjoy giving lectures at camera clubs and groups, hoping to inspire others to find the beauty that exists within everyday scenes, and to look beyond the obvious.
“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.”
