Karolina is a researcher and a photographer with a primary interest in performance photography. She did her MA in Theatre Studies in Poland and PhD in Performance Studies in London. She started photographing Japanese Butoh dance in 2001 and she has continued to follow footsteps of various performance artists around the world ever since. Her independent photography projects take performances out of theatre buildings and place them in new and challenging surroundings, such as National Gallery in London, Westminster underground station in London or Shipyard in Gdansk where Solidarity was born.
Karolina perceives photographing as an interpersonal communication mediated by a camera, a close collaboration between a photographer and a photographed subject. The experience of photographing is for her equally important as the images obtained, which creates a unique approach to photography.
