Agnieszka Kozlowska experiments in the medium of photography and is driven by a fascination with the moment of photographic exposure, when a tangible link is formed between the light-sensitive surface and the physical world. By constructing primitive cameras, using historical photographic processes and making paper, she explores the status of a photograph as a physical trace rather than purely an image.
Kozlowska is interested in how such unique photographic objects affected by rays of light reflected off the scene in front of the lens can signify that which escapes pictorial representation, for example embodied perception of the environment or durational experience of long distance walking. Through a series of photographic objects, she proposes that photography, a natural phenomenon that takes place essentially independently of human intervention, can be a tool for representing what some cultural geographers have termed the ‘more-than-human’, sensuous dimensions of our interaction with the surrounding world.
