TITLE: The inverted world
The photographs present abstract coastal landscapes, which I captured in different regions of the world.
The variation of the flora's shapes, which appeared in front of my camera, became an inspiration to explore human relationships and identity.
By creating these diptychs, which are the combination of positive and negative of the same capture, I wanted to emphasise potential opposite elements of the same subject. For me, it also symbolises the duality of human character with its complex nature which constitutes our psychological portrait which is woven from different experiences and emotions such as depression, anxiety, happiness, joy or calm.
I also observed another aspect of these compositions. I realised that they display the connection between the currently existing world and something new, which can appear in the future and constitute the outcome of our deconstructive activity on our planet.

I was born in 1980 in Poland and I graduated from the University of Silesia with a Masters in Fine Arts in 2005.
I use my camera to transfer and materialise the emotions, which develop in my mind, the excitement caused by encountered reality. Sometimes the photos can abstract from reality, showing different aspects of colours and forms, whereas other times they can simply reflect certain situations taking place in front of my camera.
Generally, my projects present an interpretation of the surrounding world and my personal experience. The main subjects of my photographs are opposites and harmony. We can witness those processes and factors everywhere: in nature or human behaviour. It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to value silence etc. This unity of opposites supports each other creating indissoluble connections. That's why looking on different aspects of compositions, subjects, colours, tones, textures we are able to name those contrasts and find 'the bridges' between those elements’.
Since I moved to England in 2006, I have exhibited my works mainly in Europe, India, the US and Canada, which include: The ING Discerning Eye (UK),
PABA International Photo Competition (Pakistan), NOA (UK), Hiii Photography (China), The Indian Photography Festival IPF (India), Berlin Foto Biennale (Germany), MIFA Photography Awards (Russia).
