Zsuzsa Darab


ungarian visual artist Zsuzsa Darab considers the role of a photographer to be synonymous with that of a psychologist. To create work she must go into the depths of her own mind, using photography as her private practice where she is the doctor, the patient and the cure. Her work is a mix of documentary and staged portraiture. Often highly personal, her photographs feature her own family, groups of siblings, friends and inspiring women in

both natural and conceptual settings. She is an observer, interested in human relationships and the connections between them. Darab studied for her Master’s degree in photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest. She is currently based in Iceland.
