ZILLA VAN DEN BORN | FASHION & BEAUTY RETOUCH
ZILLA VAN DEN BORN
Zilla – the definition of a creative Artist. She has been in the Beauty & Fashion industry for over 15 years, where she started her career modelling. Meanwhile, she studied Graphic Design at the HKU University of the Arts.
She strives for pixel perfection through retouch and uses the Photoshop magic to let you enter a world in which the impossible becomes possible. She transforms good photos into amazing stories. This and her history of working for magazines, makes that she understands all the different divisions of photography and advertisement perfectly.
Her love for nature and the outdoors inspires her most. You will see this in her work. Zilla loves shooting outside; to use natural light and look for interesting backgrounds.
The drive to keep challenging herself, pushes her to do more. She is able to teach herself anything when she puts her mind to it.
Over the years, Zilla has gotten quite some acknowledgement for her work. This started when her graduation project went viral. Worldwide everybody knows her as the girl who faked a 5-week trip to Asia, where she fooled everyone by photoshopping the entire trip. This gave her the opportunity to speak about distorted realities and fake social media representation.
It is all this that has formed her creativity and experience to the level it is now. A combination between professional and personal growth has made her the Artist she is now. This and her history of working for magazines, makes that she exactly understands all the different divisions of photography and advertisement.
