WOJTKOWSKA, Agata

I am an early stage career photographer based in Edinburgh. I was born blind in my left eye and I was once told by doctors I would not be able to see depth in the same way as others do – if I could ‘see’ depth at all! Photography came to my life as a constructive, very personal and liberating response to this imposed and limiting view on ‘seeing’. I am interested in patterns, composition and textures which through subtle variations in light and tone reveal a depth that is almost ‘tangible’ and, most importantly, meaningful. I feel I can communicate this subtlety through the medium of pinhole photography. “Seeing” and taking a picture through the tiny pinhole and ‘feeling’ the composition is for me a very intuitive and personal experience where I can immerse myself in the raw atmosphere of a landscape.
