The Image as Artefact

Blacks Club - 67 Dean St, Soho, London W1D 4QH
May 28th 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

With distinguished photographer and concept designer Kasia Wozniak

Kasia Wozniak, distinguished photographer and concept designer, talks about the importance of image and the role that images play in the arts, with particular reference to her own practice. Kasia works mainly with the Wet Plate Collodion process, one of the first photography techniques, dating back to the beginning of the nineteenth century.

Kasia Wozniak is fascinated by the idea of creating a photographic image that is both permanent and fragile, encapsulating the bespoke element of the photograph created once and only once, in the moment never to be repeated. Simultaneously, she is concerned with the relationship between photographer, sitter and the viewer. Her work questions the authenticity of the image and how we view photographs today. She is intrigued by how the photographic image can become an object in its own right in the age of digital image making.

Kasia has been a guest lecturer and workshop leader at The National Portrait Gallery, The Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey, University of The Arts London (Central Saint Martins/ London College of Fashion) and the Norwich University of the Arts.
