“My name is Jovana Rikalo and I am self-taught fine art and portrait photographer based in Serbia. I was born in 1989. I’ve been taking photos since 2013. I usually do fine art (conceptual) and portrait photography but also fashion and commercial.

I am studying law.
I had no interest in choosing photography as my profession until autumn of 2013, 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. I want, when people see my photo, to ask themselves is this a real or not?
