Art photographer and film maker, Gaëna da Sylva discovered photography as a teenager. From the first time that she saw oil catch the light in a puddle of water, light and its interaction with form have continued to fascinate her. This fascination has continued to spill over in not only her art photography and film making. Gaëna has published three collections of photographs and a collection of poetry. Gaena's abstract poetic short films combine the magic of movement and static photography often using a multi-layered approach.
Photographies from Confessions of the Green Armchiar series, self portrait projet.
Gaëna won many awards for her short film Francesca in 2014.
