Felix Zaska came to Ireland from Bavaria to attend Boarding School in Waterford, studied Industrial Design in Munich and graduated from University in Dublin. Originally based in County Wicklow he now lives and works as an artist and art photographer on the shores of Clew Bay in the West of Ireland.

His professional background is in advertising, corporate, architecture and travel photography in Ireland and abroad. A student of Oceanography he has a special interest in the Atlantic and ecosystem of the oceans as key against humanity’s self-inflicted apocalyptic future.

“As a photographer and sailor, I have always had a close relationship with the wildness of the West of Ireland, the ever changing light and meeting free spirited descendants of seafarers and pirates around Clew Bay in Mayo.

I see myself as an art photographer in my own individual space… deliberately positioned outside social media platforms. My genre could be described as apocalyptic art photography reflecting that ’ Time is an Illusion…’ (Albert Einstein) . Much of my work is focused on capturing concepts of time, space and eternity in the medium of Art Photography as well as translating these ideas into visual ‘Raw Art’ projects using Mixed Media, Painting and Sculpture.”  ( https://zaska.ie )

Photographic experience is based on working with Film in medium to large format cameras. Although now mainly using  digital medium, black and white film such as Tri-x in 6×9 cm format is still used for certain art photography projects.

This website is a selection of retrospective images, over time up to the present, as a biographical portfolio for signed limited edition prints suitable for framed display and exhibition. ” From my body of photographic work I only add exhibition images on this website that somehow contribute to the conversation of time and existence.”
