Karina Krystosiak

I’m a Warsawian, photographer and curator, improviser, woman of many talents. A volcano of ideas and positive energy. Photography is my great love, which absorbed me the rest in 2013. It happened during workshops at the University of Warsaw with Monika Szewczyk and the proposal to take part in Galeria Jabłkowscy. From that moment, the passion deepens and transforms into a “serious relationship”. I am gradually completing my knowledge and gaining experience at subsequent workshops and cooperating in organizing photo exhibitions and competitions, including from Fujifilm Polska or Polish Street Photography. I am most interested in people photography, reportage, documentary, street photography and, for some time, theater photography. Professionally deals in real estate photography. In the pictures I am looking for not obviousness in what is simply, but also the beauty of simply situations, emotions, humor, everything that is human. I work with single frames, and I try to build longer stories.

It is for me to wander around the world, meet with what is here and now. An unusual moment in what is simple, but also the beauty of averyday moments, simple stories, a bit of melancholy… In street photography, I also like humor. This kind of positive anecdotality. A funny coincidence.
