Nearly 25 years long experience with a chartered accountant background does not stop Barbara to develop her passion to photography and travel. Ever since she remembers other cultures and countries fascinated her. She travels across the world capturing unique places with and empathy to photograph people. Long-term trips to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Mexico, Bolivia, Guatemala, Caribbean Islands and most of European countries came out of curiosity and an endless need to photograph.

Barbara is a graduate student of Warsaw School of Photography. Her portfolio mainly consists of digital images. However, she is a keen user of polaroid and lomo cameras too. To some of her works she adds a graphical manipulation, however in most cases it is a record of a pure and untouched reality that surrounds her everyday.

Selected photographs can be now licensed through art + commerce / VOGUE.
