ABOUT

Despite my severe myopia, I have been passionate about visual storytelling for over a decade. 

As children, my younger sister and I used to spend hours playing with our grandfather’s video camera in Poland. When I discovered photography in my early teens, Roksana became my most devoted model – getting up at three in the morning to capture the sunrise light and posing on the snow in a flimsy Victorian nightdress. I felt particularly inspired by costume films and period dramas, which led me to develop a great interest in the moving image. 

Consequently, I moved to Edinburgh to pursue a BA (Hons) degree in Film, which I obtained with First Class Honours in 2016. Set in the 1860s, my graduation piece ‘The Dark Box’ follows an unhappily married woman, who finds solace in exploring photography. ‘The Dark Box’ premiered at Camerimage.
