AUTHOR: Patrycja Sorensen POLAND
Initially, photography was a hobby that aligned with many of my international trips and developed through the interest of experiencing and understanding how and why the world works. However soon after the aim of providing the visual understanding of social scenes, with their significance and complexity became my pure goal. Since then, I travel the world seeking unique inspiration, exploring opportunities, and keeping my eyes wide open to gain and extend my understanding of its sole nature.
The main body of my photographic work is focused on illustrating the differences between people grown on the ground of cultural involvement. This concept includes showcasing a variety of religious and non-religious based customs, traditional elements of everyday life in rural societies, and a wide range of typical and non-typical social interactions. That translates into fields such as social photography, street photography, portraiture, and documentary shots (sometimes recognized generically as travel photography).
Although the main body of my work revolves around people and their engagement in culture, I’m also involved in wildlife and nature photography, as well as more abstract and artistic shots (contemporary photography).
