Joanna szproch

I am a photography artist and academic with intuition to express ‘color’. I work within the female character and try to reach a balance between the innocent and vulgar. Allowing spontaneity is the counterpoint to my meticulous work preparation. The addressed erotic atmosphere is a diptych; on one hand bold and edgy, on the other vulnerable and self-aware. While in the hunt for that magic moment I let myself guide by the individuality of my subjects, following empathetically their urge to express sensuality. The uninhibited environment to self-exploration is the central component of my work. This will encourage the viewer to indulge in doing the same.

I was born in 1979 in Warsaw, Poland, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz (PL) with an MFA degree in 2004. Now based in Berlin since moving there in 2012, I have refocused my art practice with a new sense of bewilderment and freedom from tradition. In 2016-2018, I have been lecturing a seminar entitled “Photography and Art Direction” at the HTK - Academy of Design in Berlin. Currently, I have completed a years-long collaboration with my muse and friend @smilefomedaddy for the upcoming Photobook. Other projects include solo and group exhibitions, most recent in Weserhalle(DE), GlogauAIR(DE) and Melkweg Gallery(ND), self-published zine Bibgul, work for both print magazines and designers, collaborations with numerous Berlin artistic persona.
