A good photograph shows us not only what is beautiful to behold…but also what is waiting just beneath the surface. Sylwia Makris has been in pursuit of these sparks since she first held a camera. Her quest produces images that may delight or disturb but always move the beholder.
Sylwia Makris was born in Gdynia, Poland, and she worked as a sculptor before finding her way to photography in 2007. Today she lives in Munich and works as a freelance photographer. Her focus is portrait photography now: pictures of people who are strong or delicate, broken or dynamic. She photographs faces of our time-and, in doing so, gives a face to our time.
Sylwia Makris shows great respect for the human form, as part of a story that must be told. Her imagery has been called both magical and archaic in its power, always rich with emotion. Color Me Impressed by an artist that continues to use classic techniques in a new and different way.
