"Can anyone entangle between love and death an anecdote about being"
~Halina Poświatowska

│alias RapidHeartMovement│

I am a Polish self-portraitist currently based in the United States. I graduated in French language and literature; later, I did my research in linguistics. Passionate about the beauty of words, a few years ago I fell in love with the poetry of a famous Polish poet- Halina Poswiatowska, who inspired most of my self-portraiture. In October 2013, I published my first portfolio in “Arte Fotogràfica” (issue 61)- international Fine Art Photography Magazine.

I consider my photographic creation as a poetic experience in which I drown and infuse myself and, as a result, it gives me the feeling that I am reborn with each portrait into a new being. Although, all of my photographs are self-portraits, they shouldn’t be necessarily read as self-presentations, rather they should be revealed as the multiplicity of “selves” available to one individual. To put it succinctly, my attitude towards the self is more of an exploratory journey between an awareness of self and an unawareness of some aspects of oneself.

It must be stressed that I have always been profoundly moved by arts, which I had been profoundly ignorant about, including photography. I agree with H. Cartier-Bresson who said: “I’m not responsible for my photographs. Photography is not documentary, but intuition (…).” All of my pursuits in photography so far, are self-taught, purely intuitive and deeply-rooted in linguistic theories of cohesion in text.
