Ulana Switucha creates evocative landscape, portrait and documentary photographs working in both colour and black and white. Influenced by a Japanese aesthetic, there is an evolving minimalist style and contemplative peacefulness in her recent work. She has photographed throughout Asia and currently resides in Hong Kong.
“When creating a photograph I am drawn to the light and shape of a subject. If only for a brief moment there is a clarity and sense of awareness that dissolves distractions and brings silence. Light plays with line and form to create shadows drawing my eye into tones, lines and curves. Working in black and white brings simplicity, a graphic quality that clears the visual clutter. I aim for the essence of the moment to share in an expressive and compelling image.”
Ulana is the recipient of awards from Sony, Px3, TIFA, IPA, Fine Art Photography Awards, Monochrome Photography Awards and the Royal Geographic Society of Hong Kong. She was also a contributing photographer to the book “In the Heart of the Metropolis: Yaumatei and Its People” published by the Royal Asiatic Society and has been published in fine art photography magazines. Recently, her work has been exhibited in Canada and the United States.
