Joanna Szproch’s striking photographs border on surreal, with a clever eye for composition and form. Her work carries a sense of spontaneity reminiscent of Ellen von Unwerth with a clever wit and an eye for storytelling that brings to mind the work of Tim Walker. The photographs are a study in vulgarity, the female body, and identity, often varying between seemingly extemporaneous portraits of decadence and something far more non sequitur, almost as if frozen moments of a dream. Through lighting, color, and attention to detail, Szproch strikes the perfect balance between erotic and playful.
