We read in Tereza’s biography : “Tereza Mundilová is a freelance photographer and director based in Berlin. With Czech roots she grew up in Vienna, and has honed her visual skills in Berlin and New York. Today, she works as the editor of Vogue Germany’s Video department and shoots for publications including Crack magazine, i-D Germany, ZEIT magazine, Vogue CZ to name a few.
Lighting, colors and a connection to the person – these are defining elements for Tereza Mundilová’s imagery. Growing up in Vienna, she started taking pictures with an old digicam at the age of five and spent her afternoons working on color grading and special effects. Upon graduating from Die Graphische, she went on to study photography in Berlin before enrolling in a course for Visual Communication at the University of Arts in Berlin and later at the Cooper Union in New York City. A project where she met up with strangers via Tinder became a turning point in her career. The concept was to meet in silence and capture the moment without vocal communication of any kind. The staged look of the images inspired Tereza to start directing.
When describing her photographic style, Tereza thinks about summer. Her images are light, sensitive and intimate. Influenced by the places she has lived, she creates a nostalgic atmosphere reflecting her Eastern European roots. She thinks in images, both in movement and narrative. Interested in the way male and female bodies have been portrayed, Tereza’s work can be seen as a form of activism. By portraying soft and vulnerable versus powerful and heroic perspectives on other bodies, she offers a more diverse perception of these narratives.
At the moment, Teresa Mundilová is working on two books, various editorials and a music video. She loves dumplings and cheesy sunsets.”
