Roksana Ciurysek-Gedir is widely regarded as a contemporary visionary within her diverging fields as an artist, banker and producer. After gaining an MSc in Management and Economics, and having studied Art and Photography at Emily Carr Institute, Roksana has gone on to work for some of the worlds most established financial corporations, proving her credentials as a banker whilst earning a revered reputation as a photographer. Her achievements are largely inspired by a multifaceted and creative lifestyle that has enabled her to reach the forefront of success, working exclusively in finance and as an internationally recognised photographer, exhibiting in London, Monaco, Vancouver and Azerbaijan.
Roksana’s own photographic style has been lauded for its conveyed duality, mixing elements of both beauty and reality. Ranging across a number of varying subject choices, from iconic landmarks to more intimate portraiture, her rich focus and lurid palette manages to somehow remove and elevate the subject from any surrounding context, allowing her images to stand alone; a particular aspect of Roksana’s penchant towards fine photography.
Utilising her versatile wealth of experience, Roksana has also managed to accomplish other significant feats such as cofounding the Polish City Club under the honorary auspices of the Polish Ambassador in London, and as Producer for the highly accredited 2011 film Battle for Britain. From this, she was awarded the prestigious Newsweek Polska award for her celebrated efforts in deepening British-Polish relations. However, among the variety of accolades Roksana has received, essentially it is her devotion and personal passion towards artistic endeavour that characterises her ambitious approach towards craft.
