About me

Born in Karlovy Vary, spa town in Czech Republic , Veronika Tumova, is a self taught photographer whose passion for photography started after she moved to France in 2009. Her photographic artwork evokes different worlds of painting and plays with our imagination to provoke in us all sorts of emotions. With a well mastered technique of the use of blurriness, natural light and anonymous features, her work awakes our unconsciousness and suggests us to escape from our spectator position and to become the director of our own story. Through each one of her works, she is inviting us to a new world made of dreams, nostalgic tales, light and shadows.
