About me
I am a London-based Polish photographer and illustrator, with a background in art and design. I am a co-founder of POLAROIDTAPES an independent photography and art magazine based in London launched in 2020. I believe in providing a safe environment for people to express themselves creatively. I am passionate about creating work that is focused on youth, diversity, identity, and freedom with a colorful and playful aesthetic. I want to encourage everyone to engage in self and body positivity. I frequently collaborate with models and creatives to bring attention to the black, lgbtq, and queer communities in order to promote and demonstrate solidarity with them. I am conscious about using environmentally friendly materials as props and set designs, such as biodegradable glitter on models' faces and promoting sustainable fashion. "Creativity is very important but how you choose your team is as important as the project, as the energy and the outcome." - Laetitia Negre I am looking for like-minded people with similar interests to collaborate together. Let's build a working friendship today.
