Each week, we showcase an emerging artist from around the world who is already garnering attention for their work. Taking inspiration from the Saatchi Gallery’s 25-year history of discovering new talent, ‘One To Watch’ presents some of the most exciting artists on Saatchi Online helping collectors to identify strong emerging talent.
This week’s One to Watch featured artist is photographer Zena Holloway.
Zena Holloway has worked as an underwater photographer in London since 1995 when she returned to the UK after 3 years abroad as a SCUBA instructor and underwater videographer. Born in 1973, Zena, the daughter of an airline pilot, wanted to work underwater behind a camera from the age of 18. Completely self-taught, she combines the highly technical aspects of underwater photography with extraordinary magical imagery. Zena’s work appears regularly in publications such as the Financial Times, GQ, Observer Magazine, 125, Tatler and Dazed & Confused. She has won many international awards and her clients include Fabergé, Kylie Minogue, Nike, Umbro, Sony, National Geographic and Jacuzzi. Zena has expanded the concept of underwater photography and taken it to new depths.
