Alicja Brodowicz recently got in touch with us to show her work Learning To Swim. A series of images about the emotional and physical distance that occurs as the child grows and gains independence. Alicja's work is shot with a style that echoes tradition but at the same time ethereal and dreamlike.
Hit the jump to see the rest of the series.
To photograph is to convey importance and however Alicja’s daughter may be growing up, but with every photograph they become closer. Photographing is a duality of participation whilst remaining separate, much like the duality of Alicija’s work“It is about the feeling of immense pride and also great pain.”
Accompanying the work is this poem.
