Tjasa Gnezda, born in 1985 in Ljubljana (Slovenia) completed her studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Communication Studies – Media and Communication Studies. After she started to improve in the field of visual arts; with a course of graphic techniques in The International Graphic Art Center in Ljubljana and a professional fashion photography program at the Scuola di Fotografia Professionale e Multimedia Firenze, Italy. Recently she upgraded her video production at Innsbruck Film Campus residency, workshop at Victoria Yards Johannesburg and photography skils at ORMS Cape Town School of Photography in South Africa.

It was a privilege to see her exhibition at Victoria Yards where the portraits of South African women captured moments in their free, equal, strong and stronger lives. Placing the portraits on cotton made them more organic and natural.
