The Book


Mária Švarbová offers a breath of fresh air in the photography world. The photographer has a distinctive style that departs from traditional portraiture and focuses on experimentation with space, colour, and atmosphere, which places itself neither in the past nor in the future.

The artist


 Despite studying restoration and archeology, Maria Svarbova found a medium for her artistic expression in photography. Since 2010, she has focused on developing her own photographic language, quickly gaining international recognition. Amongst awards, solo and group exhibitions, her work has been featured in Vogue, Guardian, Instagram, Forbes and many other publications.

About the Book


What will you find inside Futuro Retro

FUTURO RETRO is a transcendental and timeless series of images from the artist which evokes a traditional setting with sci-fi elements and follows from the immense success of her first photography book, ‘Swimming Pool’.

Mária has a wonderfully individual style which moves away from the conventional. The socialist era and its architecture, public spaces and colour are hugely inspirational and this has been admired across the world in solo exhibitions and press on a global scale.

There is often a sense of cool detachment and liminality in Maria’s work. Routine actions such as exercise, doctor appointments, and domestic tasks are reframed with a visual purity that is soothing and symmetrical and at times reverberant with an ethereal stillness.
