An Image A Week: Edyta Wypierowska

There was an interesting exhibition of Polish pinhole photography called Made in Poland: Contemporary Pinhole Photography at Mass Art that just recently came down. I am typically not an admirer of the pinhole technique, however the work of Edyta Wypierowska caught my eye. Her stark and surreal photographs of constructed still lives exude a wistful sense of adventure and mystery. Wypierowska has skillfully utilized the pinhole camera's distortion of space and scale to create relationships that challenge the viewer's notions of reality.
