Veronika Lavey is an artist specialising in conceptual imagery and self-portraiture through fine art photography.
She is recognised for her dark, thought-provoking self-portraits, which are exhibited and publicised to fufil her mission of illuminating shared emotional experiences, strength and resilience in hardship, whilst inspiring others to create.
Holding up a metaphorical mirror to show the darker places in life, Veronika reminds us to cultivate empathy for ourselves and others, because ultimately we are all navigating through the same deep-rooted stories of joy, pain, hope and sorrow.
“I believe stories can transport the viewer to worlds unknown yet familiar to the subconscious. We all need these stories, because their power helps us and the narrative we're all connected to; the very ones we are naturally wired to listen to; the ones that make us feel united in our pain, our hopes, our journey of life.”
Originally from Hungary, Veronika grew up in Los Angeles and Auckland, New Zealand before settling in the United Kingdom. She is now based in Herefordshire with her husband and two children.
