Sylwia Kuzak is a Polish born Fine Art Photographer currently living and working in Birmingham, Uk.
Her life was always filled with creative ideas and strong fine art background. Constant inspiration from great artists pushed her into many personal projects in crafts and photography. Sylwia’s work developed into beautiful stories of migration and flow of human energy through landscapes, creating the unforgettable performances of light and energy forming new virtual passages.
Always trying to find ways to connect both of her passions Sylwia ended up working with multiple exposures the same way as she’s been working with different layers of fabrics in her crafts. Following the lines of stiches she created the transitions of lost and found edges directing viewer’s eyes around her images.
While working on her crafts she learnt the importance of details, and delivering the highest quality product.
"Someone once told me that the word “camera” came from Latin word for room. Each person lives in the camera- in an isolated room, full of secrets!" The Keeper of memories, 2008
Photography for Sylwia is a way of living, as it is that only art can feed her soul. But throughout her practice she learnt that to fully satisfy her 'hunger' she needs to give her viewer more, never limit herself in any way. Spread her imagination into visual objects as well as physical. Let everone see but also be able to physically follow the lines of stiches and transform it into a full experience.
