Hidden Reality

Entry Description

I wish these pictures were kind of experience for a viewer. The images are the result of intuition and subconscious. They touch shadow area. I would like what flows out of my subconscious, if you have the potential, moved your subconscious. That's why each of us must find a way to read the meaning of the pictures on our own.

About Photographer

I graduated from University of Social Science and Psychology (SWPS) and European Academy of Photography (EAF) in Warsaw. Since 2014 I'm student of the Institute of Creative Photography at Silesian University in Opava, Czech Republic. As I remember, photography has been present in my life and reminds me of my childhood. When I was a little girl, my father developed photos in a small dark room under the stairs. I remember red light in the room, three trays of the same colour and the smell of the developer. It was an amazing feeling to see how the image appeared on the photo paper. It was very often, that I found my image on it. I thought it was a kind of magic, witchcraft. The feeling of magic associated with photography is accompanying me all the time. Although my father took a lot of pictures of me when I was a child, I have just one slide in a red frame and a couple of printed pictures from my childhood. So now I take pictures to keep the memory alive, to remember moments, emotions, and people. Photography helps me to experience. I'm guided by my intuition. For me, the moment of exposure of the image is the most complete manifestation of being here and now. I'm fascinated by the influence of the unconsciousness on the creative process, autobiographical motives in artworks, mindfulness, coincidence and transcendence. I follow the voice of my heart.
