Hello, I’m Jaqueline Vanek. Photographer, Visual Artist & Senior Visual UI/UX Designer.

Please scroll down.

I was born in Villach, Austria, and I currently reside in Madrid, Spain. My creative studies began in 2003 led to Sculpture as a Senior Technician in Fine Arts, Casting and Moulding. In 2005 I became involved into the magical world of Photography ending three years later as a Senior Technician in Fine Arts and Artistic Photography and with an MA Degree in Digital Fashion, Portrait and Advertising Photography. At the end of 2011, I began my studies in Design with a MA Degree in Graphic Design, Web Communication and Art Direction; specializing later in the field of UX and UI Design. Currently, in January 2021, I have started to expand my knowledge by starting to study "Expert in Cultural Management - Direction and Management of Galleries and New Cultural Spaces".

My photographic work is mainly focused on fine art with a conceptual self-portrait thematic, photomontage, fetish and landscape photography. My photography seeks to be sensual, dark but sophisticated. In short, it would be a mix between temptation and art. Photography shows more than a mere reproduction. A picture only captures a fragment, a split of a second. It may be multi-faceted and mysterious or appeal to our most direct instincts. And this is exactly what makes it fascinating.

I also participated in international charitable projects such as "Made for Japan" in 2011 where all the profits were donated to the Japanese Red Cross for helping the victims of the earthquake/tsunami. At the beginning of 2021, I created a non-profit solidarity project/campaign to raise money and allocate it in an integrated way to a Greenpeace project related to saving the arctic, my project goes under the name "Art For Arctic" and is based on the auction art for a solidarity purpose.

Worth to mention is that I have been awarded an Honorable Mention in the IPA awards, "Annual International Photography Awards" in the category of "Professional Photographer, Portrait and Self-Portrait". I won't be in the top three winners, but it is a true honor to have made it into the top 20 finalists in my category and to have my work selected by people like David Clarke (Head of Photography at Tate), Amy Salzman (Senior Art Producer Saatchi & Saatchi NY), Paris Chong (Gallery Manager and Curator at Leica Gallery LA) or Collier Brown (Photography Critic, Harvard University), judged between a total of 13,000 entries from 120 countries around the world.

Lastly, I would also like to mention that I also had a sponsorship by Datacolor (The World Leader in Color Innovation).
