Entry Description

Taking a critical view of the social and cultural issues facing Polish nationals who choose to leave their homeland and make a new life in the UK, my work examines complex notions of Identity and belonging for economic migrants in a globalised economy.

About Photographer

I was born in Wabrzezno, Poland in 1986. I moved to the UK when I was nineteen to work and study. I have graduated from Graphic Arts, Photography at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton in 2011. Every aspect of human’s life and nature fascinates me – their lives, problems, sorrows, little moments of happiness. My body of work is a form of meditation. I believe that my photographs have grounds in philosophy, psychology, sociology and social science. For most of my personal projects I tend to choose medium format cameras using reversal film.
