Tereza Kozinc (1985) is a Slovenian photographer. In 2011 she finished her studies at the Institute and Academy for Multimedia in Ljubljana. She has been changing places from Ljubljana to Greece for nearly a decade and after to Paris - for a quest of a home while on the other side she was always urged by the necessity to move. This is also the main focus she explores in her work, the question of her home, geographically as well as emotionally. Tereza’s life can be read within her photographic motives, her work stretches between diary and documentary photography, characterised by a minimalist reality that grows into surreality. Based on intuition and on her everyday life, Kozinc’s series spread from the north of Japan to the south of her kitchen. She is a self-thought photographer, mostly using 35mm film.

Tereza Kozinc is the coordinator of East To East Photography, organizing workshops centered on former Yugoslavia and the Balkans, together with photographer Klavdij Sluban.
