Anna Gawlak

remember i said one of my goals for this year is to pick up an actual camera again? well i not so secretly wish my personal photo collection would resemble something along the lines of Anna Gawlak’s. she is a Polish photographer who describes her work better than i ever could…

This is my photo album. Its creation is like spinning a tale: spooling a film, snapping photographs, composing them… The narrative about calmness and naturalness. Calmness is more than lack of movement – I cannot stop searching it everywhere I am. Searching the naturalness means trying to pick out what is true and simple in the world – I cannot stop doing it. But, first and foremost, my own story is about big, big love. I love the world: light, colour, contrast, symmetry, trees, tasty food, buildings, doors, feet, ankles, eyes. I love the human being. Everywhere I am – I cannot stop searching. And all that makes the simple pleasures of life.

follow her work on her website, flickr & facebook page.
