Diana Takacsova is a visual storyteller whose work evolves around questions of identity, physical and emotional connection to place, migration, and the human relationship to nature and environment. She strives to bridge the factual and metaphorical by utilising various ways of storytelling - and to explore personal narratives in the topics she is drawn to.

Diana is a Slovak Press Photo award recipient (2016) and nominee (2018) as well as a member of Women Photograph. Her work has been published in print and online across Europe. She grew up in the Hungarian minority in Slovakia, is currently based between Brussels, Belgium and Bratislava, Slovakia, but feels home in motion.
