Born in 1979 to a Finnish mother and a Hungarian father, Reka started painting even before she could walk or talk. This led her to New York at the age of 17 to study painting at SVA. After graduating, her love of photography was ignited when she started modeling, traveling, and working in Asia and Europe. Reka subsequently moved back to NYC in 2004 and started her career as a photographer. She works and plays in New York City, creating fashion editorials, campaigns, CD covers, artistic portraits, and erotic photography. Her work has been exhibited in numerous galleries in the United States and Europe.
Her commercial client list is extensive, and includes Nexxus, Kiki de Montparnasse, RADO Switzerland, AOL, Liz Claiborne, MODO, Caress, DC Comics, Sally Hansen, and Ultra Records. Her work has also appeared in numerous magazines, including Esquire, Vanity Fair, Tatler, Korean Cosmopolitan, and Twill. In 2010, she won first place at the prestigious International Photography Awards (IPA) in the Professional Beauty Category. Her monograph, titled Femme Fatale: Female Erotic Photography, has been translated into six languages and is available worldwide.
