Born in Bratislava, Slovakia, the photographer Evelyn Bencicova decided to pursue her interest in fashion- and art-photography a couple of years ago, following her urge to create images and stories of her own creating Naked Art Photography.
She is a very young photographer born in 1992 and works mostly with digital photography. In her work she is trying to pursue a point in which the commercial and artistic meet, focusing on conceptual as well as visual aspect of photography.
For Evelyn Bencicova, the content of the picture is not just the person or the object that it depicts, but rather the thoughts or concepts the image evokes. Her images go beyond the apparent, without however being symbolic or representational: for her, a photograph is just a moment in a longer and multilayered creative process, since she sees herself more of a creator of scenes or sculptural compositions than ‘just’ a photographer, admitting that she is not really interested in the technical aspects of what she does.
Through her treatment of the body as more of a sculptural or choreographic device, she creates poignant visual gestures which do not ‘stand for’ something, but rather bring actual relationships into existence – relationships between the individuals who pose for her, the body and its environment, the viewer and Bencicova herself.
In the ‘Ecce Homo,’ series many faceless nude bodies appear in strange positions. Some are lying on shelves or tables, while others are sprawled in masses on the floor. Ecce Homo is Latin for ‘behold the man,’ a common artistic motif with Biblical origins that has been expanded to include depictions of violence and war.
