“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 with my camera, 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. I give talks at camera clubs and have lectured abroad.
“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.”
