Bulgarian born, London-based Greta Ilieva learnt the art of taking pictures from her mother, also a photographer. From a young age, she acted as her assistant, changing film and working in a dark room.
She studied at London’s Camberwell College of Art and Design in Graphic Design, before studying for her Masters at the prestigious Royal College of Art in Communication, Art and Design.
Greta quickly gained momentum as gifted young photographer with an honesty and intimacy that runs through her work. Her distinctive photography style is seen throughout the pages of publications including Unemployed, 10, V Magazine and Dust and her commercial clients include the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Isabel Marant and MiH Jeans.
In between editorial and commercial work, Greta is currently working on a book about her family.
