Can you imagine 50 people holding hands in a circle?
That many people contributed to "Dreamcatchers" book (*)
I've always been suffering from impostor syndrome. Minimising achievements, thinking they were not important to talk about.
But - it's been enough.
How can anyone appreciate my work if I don't?
After a couple of simple photo-albums, I wanted to create something bigger, which would not only show case my best work, but also be a tribute to sisterhood and collaboration.
If you have been in the studio with me, you know that I love to talk about life, to get to know who my models are, what moves them, what we have in common.
One day we set together with Danka, to brainstorm about the possibilities.
Concept of the "Dromenvangers" has been thought through throughly - there is no coincidence in choice of images, in order of texts and photos or in colours and layout.
We have put our hearts (and sweat and a few tears ;) in it. It's been amazing 6 months of work and we became real Sisters trough this project.
Most of the contributors are women, and it only shows how wonderful (and powerful!) Sisterhood can be.
The book has already found many new homes and the feedback we received is amazing.
"Touching. Emotional. Looking perfect, so many details. Texts are so inspiring..."
(*) 35 models posed for portraits, 1 photographer took pictures, 3 graphic artists (Kaja, Marta i Joanna) made artworks, 6 brave women shared their personal thoughts, 3 people helped to translate the texts, 1 person (Iwona) made animations of some works and 1 (Danuta) put it all together in a book...
