Karolina Maciagowska, will be travelling to Landskrona Foto Festival, Sweden in August.
Karolina is a fine art photographer and video/multimedia artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Karolina’s work brings together imagery and text inspired by the imagination and memory and the depiction of real objects, situations and ordinary moments. Her images are carefully constructed records created by observation and an ongoing investigation of the world and her surroundings.
The editing within her grid installations is crucial to her work and the final results are never left up to chance, aiming to lead the viewer into finding the extraordinary within the mundane and discover the visual poetry of photographic language.
Michael Daglish will be attending the Singapore International Photography Festival in October. Michael is a visual artist based in Sunderland. He is interested in the experiential aspects of being. The work he produces looks at the phenomenology of human experience, questioning our interactions with those around us as well as the environment we inhabit, be it momentary or long lasting.
Aesthetically his work sits within an area of construction. Although not always fully produced, it acts as a temporary intervention within a space.
