Exhibitions of photos and posters – hall 8

Fairytale photography by Anna Sychowicz


This is how Anna describes herself and her art: Since I was little, I created things using pencil. Now, because of laziness and possibilities of digital photography, I take photos. And thanks to the drawing abilities I try to make my photos a bit more like paintings using graphic programs.
The most common theme of my photographs is a close relationship between human and nature. I was always fascinated by fantasy literature, I also think that world around us is, in many ways, so grim and cruel – I like to create my own, alternative reality, where people and animals live in perfect harmony. My goal is to send this message through my art – we are part of this world just like plants and animals, and we have to respect and protect it.
