Hi, I’m Aleksandra Dynas. Or just Ola.

I’m an economist.
I live in Spain, in Barcelona.
My best toy was a small old hippo.
My mother used to call me Matilda when I was young.
My father treated me as a boy and he made me climb trees.
When I was 4 years old I dropped the jar in the supermarket just because I wanted to see it fall (my mother almost killed me).
I threw myself into the puddle just to make my mother angry ( my mother almost killed me …again).
During a ball, when I was 4, all the girls has costume of princess and I was a …squirrel.
I visited around 50 countries and lived in 7.
I love coffee chocolate ice-cream and lassi in India.

When I was 20 I jumped with parachute.
I’m traveler from heart.

I’m a speaker and I do my conferences about travels, photography and women who travel alone. Also I talk about challenges in the todays world for women.
My photo went to the Semi- Final in College Photographer of the Year.
I published my pictures in El Pais, Vanguardia, Periodico, El Nacional (among others)- Spanish newspapers.
I work also in social issues.
I believe that photography is the only material thing that helps us to preserve the past.
I won different prices and participated in different international programs in different awards.
I would say, that I am a girl who one day decided to change the excel for a camera. And to start explore the world and to document it on my own way. With all the beauty, with all the pain and mostly reflecting reality because I believe that there is nothing more amazing that the life itself.
I’m a speaker and I’m guest in many podcasts and festivals where I talk about photography and traveling.
