Bernadette Fejér - Photographer
The everyday naturalness, triviality and fallibility of nudity is a common experience for all of us. However, the intimate image of our naked bodies reminds us of our vulnerability, so the sight of it is almost a disturbing sacral moment: confronting our deepest identity, which brings us all to endless solitude. To avoid the confrontation and ignore the contradiction, we voluntarily commit to blindness as a society.
My journey with photography began at the age of twelve. Even as a little girl I was so drawn to all different forms of art. During my studies I was more dedicated year by year which made me realize: this is not only my passion but also my long term mission.
In my hometown I always been surrounded by nature so I was lucky enough to connect with the beauty of it on a very deep level. I admired all the details of its magic - the trees, the plants, the animals and all creatures. I often collected things and their images, getting to know my home and my environment better. This helped me understand that the connection between nature and humans is essential and ever-present from a young age. Spectacularly, in this connection life and death appear at the same exact moment and this is something truly beautiful.
I obtained my Masters degree in Photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest in 2016. I studied photography for three years at the University of Art and Design, Cluj.
