Sylwia Makris, born 1973 in Poland, switched from Sculpture to Photography in 2007. Within shortest time she became a well known Photographer through her impressive work, so far there have been numerous publications in Fashion- and Art Magazines. Actors, Musicians and Models like Shaun Ross or Melanie Gaydos have been her clients.
Her work has a very sensitiv deepness, involving the viewer in this very right moment and atmosphere of each image. „Every face has it’s story,” Sylwia says, „and it is telling more than it ever knows. Photography is not just the catched moment you see, it is also telling what could have been and what is waiting painfully under the surface.”
