Catalina Kulczar is an award-winning Hungarian photographer and director based in New York.
People have said of Catalina Kulczar that her “laughter is a beacon.” Her animated, playful sensibility is her trademark,and she brings it with her wherever she goes, from studio sessions to filmshoots to her travels around the world.
Born to Hungarian parents but raised in Caracas and then South Florida, Catalina has the innate ability to focus on the bigger picture while also understanding that the most interesting stories can often be found close to home. Her photos are infused with a sense of warmth and empathy, and there’s a sly playfulness to the way she shoots her subjects, bringing their innate personalities and quirks close to the surface while still letting them define themselves on their own terms.
As a filmmaker and music lover in addition to a photographer, Catalina understands that life is kinetic and full of motion, and there’s a palpable joyous energy that courses through her film shoots, making her subjects come alive and find their true groove. And while her eyes are wide open to the realities of the world, a fundamental optimism courses through her work as well. That’s how Catalina sees things, and the way she wants us to see things as well.
