Tereza Zelenkova (born 1985 in Czech Republic; lives and works in London, UK) is an artist working predominantly with traditional black and white photography, creating series based on ephemeral and poetic relationships between photographs. In her work, she’s often interested in mythologies surrounding particular places or people, blending facts and fiction, and scrutinizing the limits of photographic representation.


The photographic medium with all its technical specificities, its affinity with darkness and co-existence in both the negative and positive spaces, its contradictions such as the one that photographs are linked to both death and immortality, its questionable relationship with objective representation, and above all its beauty that stems from the simplicity of image taking, lie all at the core of her artistic practice.


She received her MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art in London (2012). She is a recipient of the Jerwood Photoworks Awards (2015) and 1000 Words Magazine Award (2012). She was also shortlisted for the Saatchi New Sensations award (2012), and she was a finalist of Fresh Faced & Wild Eyed awarded by The Photographer’s Gallery in London (2011). She had exhibited her work at various galleries and museums worldwide, most recently at the Impressions Gallery (Bradford, UK, 2016), Jerwood Space (London, UK), and Musée de l’Élysée (Lausanne, CH). She has several self-published books as well as Supreme Vice published by Mörel Books (2011).  Her work is among others in collections by Fotomuseum Winterthur in Winterthur (CH), Saatchi Gallery in London (UK), and Musée de L’Elysée in Lausanne (CH).
