Born in Poland, the photographer Alicja Dobrucka lives and works in London. 'I like taking photos in Poland, because I know it well and, thanks to that, the work I do here's powerful,' she tells Culture.pl.
Alicja Dobrucka was born in Kowary in 1985. She graduated from the prestigious FAMU in Prague and two London institutions: Goldsmiths and the London College of Communication. Her work has been shown in the likes of London, Vienna and Lisbon.
'My inspirations don't come from photographs. I feel that photography is more interesting within the context of art, in the context of painting or sculpture,' Dobrucka explains. 'It's then that it starts to breathe. It takes on more life.'
