Studio Peripetie is perhaps one of the most impressive, contemporary photography studios I’ve encountered. Under the creative direction of photographer Sylwana Zybura, the studio crafts fine art photography that rivals ancient art masters who worked with the brush. Sylwana Zybura, also known as Madame Peripetie, is a Polish-German linguist and image maker whose work draws inspiration and pays homage to surrealists, cubists, and European theatre. Sylwana’s photography explores the boundaries between fashion and art and within that blurred space she creates master pieces that are eccentric, colourful, and meaningful.
It should be no surprise that her work has garnered worldwide attention. Top fashion brands such as Topshop and Hunger Magazine have hired her to develop exciting fashion campaigns that break the mundane billboards you see walking around your city. Moreover, she has received awards from IPA, PX3, The Art Director’s Club, LICC, and Katapult.
The photography that comes out of Studio Peripetie should leave no doubt in your mind that fine art photography is here to stay. Enjoy some choice images below and get lost in the blurred space between high fashion and surreal art.
