    Artist: Wanda Michalak

    Hahnemühle Baryta print, size 56x38cm, edition of 5 (+ 2 A.P.).

    Also available in other sizes.

     

    Wanda Michalak was born in Poland. Her early childhood was spent in the fumes of photo chemicals which probably influenced the choice of her future profession. But not straight away. It took years of growing up, finishing various schools, having a baby, moving out of Poland, arriving in Amsterdam, moving out to the Cook Islands then New Zealand to find out that photography was the thing.

    She followed a course of photography in Auckland’s Carrington Polytechnic. Having finished that, ended up back in Amsterdam. Taught photography there and in Warsaw. Gave work-shops as far as Brazil. And travelled a lot. In the year 2000 she had this mad idea of opening her own gallery, Gallery WM is still running. And Wanda is still travelling.

    Wanda Michalak photographs portraits, landscapes, nudes. Important is the emphasis she places on mutual cohesion, the “connection”, a word that is frequently used in the titles of her exhibitions. Her landscapes are portraits of nature.
