Interview: Photographer Kasia Lazurek (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I'm Kasia Lazurek and I'm 29. I live in Wrocław, called also WrocLOVE. As a photographer name I'm using Caryca Pictures. There are two natures inside me, that are in constant battle with each other: scientifics – biologist and vulnerable, messed up artist. This can be seen on my pictures – wild nature and architectonical order. Personally, I'm a big fan of good design, riding a bike and coffee.
How and when did you get into photography?
Art was present in my life since very begining, because of my father, who was gifted in that manner. He collected antiques (a real hunter!) and sometimes curved in wood. At first, my adventure started with drowing schetches , then painting, finally finding myself in photography. That was about 12 years ago, when I received my first camera.
What does photography mean to you?
Photography is a side step from here and now, an expression of my internal feelings, a bit of therapy.
Where do you get inspiration from?
Mainly, inspirations are coming from nature, but many times are depending from my emotions. Also, I love walking around my city and find beautiful places like museums, restaurants, old houses or even a wall with interesting texture. Sometimes just a glimpse is enough for me to invent entire session.
Think you in advance what you want in picture?
Usually it is one, two pictures that I have in mind before session. Other photos are the result of our feelings, light, model and interactions between us.
Studio, on location or both?
I prefer working outside, but if we think about a closed space, I will always be happy to take pictures in stylish interiors, such as Pawilon Czterech Kopuł we Wrocławiu, building "NOT" at Piłsudskiego street. Sessions in a typical studio - rather not.
What do you think of our new magazine?
It's a great place to find an interesting photographers! I didn't know that so many Polish artists are present and recognised on this site. That's why I decided to send my work, and after all it was awarded to picture of the day. Thank you!
