Justyna Ptak’s photographs seek to capture the significant and intangible in the everyday and are drawn from domestic, architectural and rural environments.
Justyna Ptak’s photographs seek to capture the significant and intangible in the everyday. Justyna’s images are characterised by their formal properties – light, texture and composition – as well as their technical qualities, often large format and transparent. The images are drawn from domestic, architectural and rural environments which are both sharp and hazy simultaneously. The experimental core of the work is amplified by its presentation as transparencies, affecting the viewer’s perception of the imagery and of the space in which it is displayed.
Justyna is the 2012 recipient of the West Midlands Open best in show prize, and a recent postgraduate of the University of Wolverhampton.
