Meyrem Bulucek | Artist Profile


In Paradise, 2013.

Meyrem Bulucek is a current contestant in Find Your Art School’s 2nd Annual Photo Contest. Mey is a Romanian photographer, currently completing her BFA in Photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. At only 21 years old, Mey has received international acclaim for her photographs. Her artwork has been displayed in group exhibitions in Savannah, London, Milan, and several cities throughout Romania. In 2010, Mey received the Silver medal prize in the “Romanian Photographer of the Year” contest for a self-portrait submission. She is the first and only teenager to receive this award, and she claimed the prize only a few short months after she began shooting. She is also the recipient of the SCAD Artistic full tuition scholarship and was named the Atkin’s Young Environmental Photographer of the Year in 2011. She has also placed in several other contests in Australia, Singapore, and France.

Always attracted to the arts, Mey found photography was unlike any other medium she had experienced. “My story as a photographer began four years ago when I saw a mysterious yellow-toned photograph that changed my life as I knew it,” Mey explained. “I could not help wondering how it had been taken and what magic was hiding beneath it.”

Not satisfied with simply viewing and enjoying photographs, Mey quickly began experimenting with her own photography, learning more about the craft, and growing creatively in leaps and bounds. “It was at that moment that I stopped seeing life as just a bunch of lines and shapes that I could easily replicate on a piece of paper, but as a world that I could create and capture almost instantly through photography.” Finding inspiration and opportunity everywhere, Mey found herself either photographing or taking mental pictures wherever she went, enjoying opportunities for candid shots, fashion photography, environmental photography, and portraits. Describing her passion, Mey admits she “overworked and obsessed” about her photography, but was rewarded for her intense dedication with scholarships, prizes, and recognition. Recently, Mey’s unstaged photo of a young ballerina on a bus was included in Vogue’s photo exhibition at Fashion’s Night Out.

A few months ago, Mey’s dream came true. The Annie Leibovitz Studio offered Mey an internship in New York City, which will begin either in the coming months or next summer. If her photo submission in our Photo Contest is chosen a winner, Mey hopes to use the prize money to fund her move to New York and upgrade her camera equipment. “Annie is such an inspiration to me, and her team is one of the best in the world. Being there would offer my young eyes an unparalleled experience.”

About In Paradise:

“The photograph I submitted is special to me because of the girl that’s in it and the circumstances we were under. We woke up at sunrise and got lost in the cold to take photographs. It was so quiet it felt like nothing was alive but us. Back then she was almost a stranger. Now she’s one of my favorite people in the world. When I look back at that moment I realize how much she exposed herself to me by letting me photograph her like that. In a way, Ginx is my muse, she has a really beautiful heart.”

We are in the last week of our Photo Contest. You can help support Meyrem’s work by voting for her photo submission. Live voting continues through July 4th. Learn more about Mey’s art by visiting her website.
