What is it that attracts you the most of what you have around you?
Many things, the everyday life, the nature…I’m always working on a few several projects at once, so when I have my camera I shoot accordingly to what I think would fit for each project.
Tell us about your experience as photographer. What did it give you?
Photography is a major part of my life. Photography gives me some kind of freedom. It helps me express myself artistically, and that’s a wonderful thing. Photography also helps me meet new people. Some of those people are online contacts, some are people that I’ve met in real life. Some of these are people interested in photography, some are models who have gone on to become friends.
How you found your first job as photographer/artist?
I really don't remember, it was many years ago…
Three adjectives to describe yourself.
Sensitive, creative, nostalgic.
A film, a book and a song
Film: Dead Man - Jim Jarmusch
Book: Popular music from Vittula - Mikael Niemi
Song: Samson - Regina Spektor
Favorite web of photography
What camera do you use? Dou you use one lens?
I use some different kind of cameras and different lenses.
Tell about exhibition if you‘ve had any.
My works has been presented on many exhibitions in Poland, Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic. For last few years I made many multidisciplinary art projects such as Tonopolis. But what brings me the greatest satisfaction is developing the very concept of a project and realizing the first stage of it. Completion and public exhibition of my works is not of great importance to me. At the moment of presenting them to the public I have already been working on the project for several years from its conception, so I have grown bored with it and my thoughts drifts away to new ideas.
Do you sell prints? How do you make it and where can someone buy?
I accept orders via email. I try to keep my prints very limited, you can find the currently available ones here: www.ewa-doroszenko.com
What was your most big success?
This moment hasn't come yet ;)
I really enjoy the work of Madame Peripetie, Akif Hakan, Elizaveta Porodina, Oleg Dou, Joel- Peter Witkin to name a few.
Describe some of your projects
The series False memories is a collection of photographs that talk about the human desire to be free and to search for magical elements in life. This is the story about dream-paradise, about the land of milk and honey. The photography series is an attempt to visualize one of the aspects of human memory - forgetfulness. The time and memory ceaselessly deform and transform pictures engraved in our minds, altering its form, structure and shape. With the passing time, the complete, clear and almost tangible picture recorded in our mind changes its structure blurs and gets distorted, finally to fall into oblivion. The photographs are a static illustration of the fascinating process of forgetting bygone events, occurring automatically in our minds. A vital aspect of the photographs is employing nature in the process of creation. The pictures were made using an original technique based on the randomness of the fire element. Treated with destructive flames, they became barely visible shadows of bygone events.
Your main concept.
I don't really have a main concept, but I focus on human, his identity, emotional states, and especially on his relationship with real or designed place. During the past years I have explored wide range of topics, such as visions of human future or mobile culture.
What is your occupation, job, interest besides photography.
I'm a professional trained artist. Apart from photography, I’m maintaining on many art levels such as installation, painting, drawing. Using that wide variety of art languages I wish to develop unique art forms, combining different features of each medium with strong attention to details and workshop as once.
Which advice would you give someone who wants to become a (professional) photographer?
Find the perfect moment, keep it in your camera.
I am finishing new series of paintings and preparing for the exhibitions coming up. In the near future I am going to concentrate on photography - my newest 'child' is called Futa Projekt and can be found at www.cargocollective.com/futaprojekt
