Playful and messy

At Krampus parade,Tyrol,I noticed a little girl hiding in the crowd.I quickly grabed my camera.She was a bit scared but at the same time she was messing with the walking masked men.Her grimaces,her ginger plaits, her freckles, and her perfect matching green hat reminded me of Pippi Longstocking.

About Artist

Veronika K Ko

I am coming from family of artists (painters, sculptors, composers) and doctors. I love to paint too but I prefer to use my photo camera instead a brush and canvas. Since I was a little, I always loved to take pictures, especially when traveling or at the family gatherings. Photography became my hobby and passion few years ago, when I received a serious DSLR camera for my birthday. I have never studied photography or took classes. When shooting, I am using only my artistic genes and "eye", my intuition and imagination. I am an old fashioned photographer and I don't use Photoshop. I prefer to look for and use natural and real colors and light, although sometimes it takes a lot of time and efforts. I love to be creative and to experiment, using different techniques (panning, icm, e.t.c.) or creating my own. I like to pay attention to detials, elements, patterns. I also like to take pictures of interesting and real people with beautiful minds and souls. I am looking for a beauty everywhere, even in the smallest and sometimes invisible for the others things. I am in love with the Life, with Nature, with our Universe and I prefer to "see" the world in colour and it can be seen in my photos:) With my photography I would like to show how I am seeing the world. Not just the visuals of the scene in front of me but also my feelings and emotions. I would like my photography to give others pleasure, to evoke emotions and to provoke a thought process, to send messages. Messages, that we have to keep our beautiful Earth green, clean and safe; to open our hearts and to show more love and compassion for each other and always try to reveal the Good in the human nature; to love, respect and to protect the nature and the animals-our "brothers and sisters" with which we share our Planet. I started with photography almsot as a joke but it gradually and passionately fascinated me and became a part of my life. It brought me a lot of joy and gave me a "field" for expression. It brought me many pleasant experiences and great emotions, during my travels around the world, and meetings with wonderful people. It also brought me serious success: in just a few years I won several prestigious world photo-compeitions and I was featured and published worldwide in medias, books, magazines, in famous photo-platforms and exhibitions . My pictures are published in 13 National Geographic's books, NatGeo's magazines, in @natgeo, @natgeotravel. I am photographer-contributor for NatGeo's @natgeoyourshot .
