Monica Menez' photographic work shifts between art and fashion photography.
"For me, it is always fun to embellish and create a visual firework", says Monica Menez. The Stuttgarter photographer loves to play with colours, patterns and optical illusions; challenges aesthetic prejudices and strives to overcome them. She continually creates new and exceptional photographs - in her personal projects as well as in her commissioned fashion work.
She creates her own truth, surreal, narrative stories. Her main characters are, almost unexceptional, seductive women of a strange beauty.
