Diana Takacsova is a visual storyteller whose work revolves around questions of identity, physical and emotional connection to place, migration, and the human relationship to nature and environment. She bridges various ways of storytelling, and explores personal narratives in the topics she is drawn to. 

Diana is a National Geographic Society grantee, a Slovak Press Photo award recipient (2016) and nominee (2018) whose work has been published in print and online across Europe. Besides photography, her professional experience includes communications at large in the non-governmental sector, most prominently focusing on the Eastern Partnership and MENA regions.  

A member of Women Photograph, she grew up in the Hungarian minority in Slovakia, is currently based between Belgium, Portugal and Slovakia - but feels home in motion.
