1978, Częstochowa, Poland. Currently: Madrid, Spain
- Who are you?
I am photographer, not very talkative. I was born in Poland, but now I live with my boyfriend – also photographer – in Spain. I love to learn new things, although it’s very hardto teach me something since I am the worst pupil in the world. Well, I wish I could have more patience for my masters. Everybody considers me a very calm and reasonable person. I think the same, and maybe exactly this quiet nature draws all kind of wicked situations which turn my world upside down every couple of years.
- What is it that took you to see the world through a lens?
I was always looking for a tool which could help me to express myself better, since I’ve never liked to talk too much. I went through lots of things: playing guitar, spirituality, drawings… and one day I opened the wardrobe, where my mum was guarding all my dad’s photo equipment (he died when I was very young). And the adventure began.
- What do you write between lines?
Photography always was a kind of therapy for me. It helped me a lot to understand my feminity, to notice my strong and week points, to see how the body can be a beautiful form instead of a source of complexes. I would love if people portrayed in my photos had the same experience as I have..
- What can we see in your mirror?
I am not a conceptual artist , I don’t have any important messages to transmit. All I want toachieve is to capture the essence of the moment, the real nature. I am tired of faking smilesand stunning beauty which doesn’t come out from the inside..
