Entry Description

The human body is a visual bridge between the spiritual and what is external and material . Posthumanist they perceive the body as a primary prosthesis which man tamed and trying to improve . In my work, I wonder if the new man is a step in the pursuit of degradation or step in the creation of a superman ?

About Photographer

I was born 1975 years living and working in Gdansk. I study photography at the University of Arts in Poznan at the Department of photographs. In addition to digital photography often I reach for alternative photographic techniques such as wet kolodion , Cyanotype or pinhole photograph . Exploring and experiencing the potential of traditional techniques. Repeatedly photographing manipulating reality , I join subjective motives narratives and create unreal images (including planning) . I'm interested in man , the penetration of meanings, as well as dreamlike vision contexts bound with the history of art. In my work there are motifs associated with the human body , distribution , transience , family, motherhood and childhood world .
