About Eva Zar.
Who is she?
Eva Zar is a New-York based artist and fashion photographer with Russian roots, who grew up in Vienna, Austria. Awarded a Michael C. Toth scholarship and a Provost scholarship she started her Master of Fine Arts with a major in photography at the renowned Parsons School of Design in 2016. Zar captures people in an offline space outside of social media. Exploring the intimate and fragile moment before the staging of a selfie, the messy room that gets cropped out of the frame, and the way we create personal space when nobody watches. In her world, her subjects’ phones are part of the set design, their beds and rooms become stages and studios. Zar also has an obsession with fruits, good conversations, and inappropriate daily life details.
Eva Zar's photographs have been published internationally in magazines such as i-D, Broadly, Blonde, Curated By Girls, Paper, Hunger, Time Out, Refinery29, Vice and many more. Her artwork has been shown in numerous places around the globe. Zar was also named one of the “20 most interesting photographers of Austria“ by Gap Magazine. Her list of clients include Audi, Coca Cola, H&M, The Impossible Project, Lomography, Warner Music Germany, Vice, Museumsquartier and many more.
Right now, she is continuing her MFA at Parsons and releasing her first book called Say My Name.
