  • Biography
    " I don't have a philosophy, I have a camera."

    Beata Podwysocka (AFRP, AFIAP) was born in Olsztyn, Poland. She is a self-taught artist who has been always receptive to modern art especially abstract, surrealist and minimalist forms. Her work lies at the intersection of  photography and fine arts. She is drawn to the poetry of the ordinary and thus she loves exploring the surrounding world in search of scraps and patches of familiar landscapes in order to isolates shapes, forms, colours or patterns and mould them into self-existing beings. She uses her camera in the way a  quilt maker handles scissors cutting out the pieces of reality and sewing them together into a fine art patchwork.

    While taking photographs the artist often reaches for vague and transient images such as shadows or reflections. She is fascinated with the fact that one is able to freeze the world that is absolutely intangible, but at the same time, it is inevitably and irreversibly non-existent without the actual physicality of things. Thanks to such a shift in perception she enters countless parallel worlds which are close at hand every day although we rarely realize that we live in their immediate vicinity.

    Her works are held in private collections in Poland, the UK, France, Denmark and the USA.

    Since 2010 the artist has been actively and successfully participating in photographic competitions both nationally and internationally. Her works have been displayed at four  solo exhibitions and several group shows as well as post-contest exhibitions.

    Since 2014 she has been a creative photographer, Fellow of the Polish Republic’s Photoclub, a holder of the AFRP title. In July 2015, she obtained the distinction ‘Artist FIAP’ (AFIAP) awarded by the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP).

    'Creating unique effects with lights and shadows captured by a camera is, according to many, one of the most important means of photographic expression. Photographers have relied on the possibilities offered by the interplay between lights and shadows throughout the history of photography. In some cases lights and shadows are used to the effect of creating a formal compositional element; in others their role is to guide our gaze or focus our attention on specific parts of the image. The ways lights and shadows contribute to photographic meaning only depend on the imagination of the photographer.'
