You Have Small Braids Like Spider Threads by Angelika Ejtel

“I consider my photographic creation a poetic experience. My work is inspired by the poetry of a famous Polish poet-Halina Poswiatowska. I find beauty in its simplicity, metaphorical message, and liberty of interpretation. I search for the same values depicting the meaning of her poems. I use myself as a subject. My preferred medium is photography, I would love to experiment painting, art/text, and collage. My images encompass the motifs of love, solitude and death. Slow, silent and at times painful, these portraits being self-portraits whisper in silence, cry in loneliness or scream in suffering, always between love and death. My objective to re-examine the eternal question of human existence is the one Poswiatowska probes in her poem: “can anyone entangle between love and death an anecdote about being” (English translation by M. Lugowski)
