Illusion, digital art by Jovana Rikalo

White girl and smoke

“My name is Jovana Rikalo and I’m a fine art and portrait photographer, currently living in Serbia. I got into photography about 4 years ago by taking miscellaneous pictures of friends, nature and mostly myself in an attempt to capture memories and special moments, mostly for my personal needs.

I had no interest in choosing photography as my profession until autumn of 2012, when I finally realized how strongly I really feel about it.

Photography has become my greatest love. Capturing emotions and milestones is now a big part of who I am, and the whole idea of perfectly freezing special moments & feelings pushes me to take risks, get creative and learn as much as I can about the art of photo editing.

When it comes to style & interests, I prefer the outdoors and eye-catching locations. I like to create unreal situations in the real world, and tell surreal stories with my camera. My mission is to create images that look unnatural, but feel real.”
