Szóstak balances her interests between fashion, travel, and portrait photography. Her photos are a great affirmation of femininity and vitality. She has developed a unique visual language, and her aesthetic is rooted in the tradition of the masters of painting and photography. Her photographs in the PURO Hotels collection maintain a warm color scheme, portraying women in sun-drenched interiors, recalling the pictures of Pierre Bonnard. Yet in their compositions and expression, Szóstak’s frames are more cinematic. The viewer feels they have caught these figures in an intimate, reflective moment, just before making an important decision.
