Moments I Never Showed You by Natalia Poniatowska
Born in the industrial realm of the Silesian region in the Southern part of Poland, Natalia Poniatowska has been working with the medium of photography for more than a decade. She recently graduated from the fine art photography program of The Glasgow School of Art and is now developing projects where the meaning of images is articulated through a point of view that is, at once, conceptual and personal.
"Having spent the majority of my life away from my motherland, I often return to the theme of homesickness and belonging in my artwork. "
— Natalia Poniatowksa
This project has been shot in several countries. Mainly consisting of outdoor sites, the series shows places the artist don’t belong to and people she has never got to the chance to meet. It is a departure from previous work that had nostalgia, homesickness and belongs at their heart. This project accepts personal and visual encounters that speak of a connection that is grounded in the photographic composition. As such, it is a pause in the flow of time: transitory.
