Katarzyna Wąsowska

A Polish photographer born in Gdańsk in 1990. She graduated from the University of the Arts in Poznań with a degree in photography. She is a co-founder of the publishing collective and self-publishing reading room Ostrøv in Poznań. Her artistic practice drifts between subjective, unreal creative photography and documentary photography. She reaches out to scientific and para-scientific literature and bases her visual research on archives and interviews with people to build stories about specific places or specific communities which differ from facts, but are historically plausible. Her works have been presented at festivals such as TIFF Festival in Wroclaw, Encontros da Imagem in Braga (Portugal) and Athens Photo Festival.
