KATARZYNA MACHNIEWICZ - biobr>
She has been involved in dance photography since 2008. The primary subject of her photographs is contemporary dance. She has gained experience and perfected her skills in the field by photographing the leading Polish and foreign artists, sometimes in very difficult conditions. Her current photographic interests revolve around depicting kinetic expression, making the body unreal, materialising emotional expression through the body and motion, as well as the influence of motion on the body and emotions of the dancer.
Her photographs have been published in both Polish and foreign magazines, promotional materials of festivals, the Polish dance website taniecpolska.pl, as well as websites of the artists whose performances she has photographed.
In November 2015, she received the main award in the 2015 Theatre Photography Competition, organized by the Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute, for her photograph taken during the ROOM 40 performance, choreographed by Maciej Kuźmiński.
Her work has been displayed at the "2015 BalletOFFFestival Residencies" solo exhibition at the Nowa Huta Cultural Centre in Cracow, as well as "Dance. Man.Woman.Continuum." in WOAK Bialystok from 7 to 24 april 2016 as event of festival "Kaleidoscope", the collective exhibition of the works of the finalists and participants of the Theatre Photography Competition from 16 November to 17 December 2015, the Łazienki Królewskie Museum Open-Air Gallery on Aleje Ujazdowskie in Warsaw, as well as the Exhibition of Finalists' Works held at the headquarters of the Theatre Institute from 23 November 2015 to 23 January 2016.
