Tereza Cervenova is a London-based photographer who recently graduated from Middlesex University on a BA Hons Photography course. The driving and shaping force of her work is often the everyday life and relationships with people she meets. Tereza also draws her inspiration from painting and literature and describes her work as sensitive, intimate and poignant. She was the winner of the 2014 D&AD Yellow Pencil for Photography and one of the five winners in the Daniel Blau Gallery first ‘5 under 30’ Young Photographers Competition. She was also shortlisted for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013 in the National Portrait Gallery in London.
This work is an exploration of photography used as a poetic language. It is my personal response to the flow of life, where everyday events are transformed into poignant memories. The subjects of the photographs are not only the protagonists of their stories; they are vessels for my thoughts. As such the viewer is invited to re-interpret these fleeting moments through the hidden reflections of their own memories and experiences.
