Alicja’s main focus is on subjective documentary and fine art photography.
“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.”
I photograph the human body – the microcosm.
Its’ fragments: hair, scars, texture of skin, wrinkles.
I am interested in individual particularities; I look for distinguishing features and
irregularities. Imperfections are my favourites.
I photograph nature – the macrocosm.
Surface of water, grass, tree bark, dry leaves.
I combine the two images, looking for converging lines, textures, similarities in layout and analogies in composition between the microcosm and the macrocosm. I look for unity between the human body and nature.
