Alicja Pietras started being passionate about photography in her late twenties when she joined a photography course in Warsaw School of Photography. Quickly she developed her great interest in femininity and its different meanings. As intimate contact is crucial for Alicja, she usually photograph her closest friends. However she have also been taking a lot of self- portraits as she consider the camera as a mirror, trying to see what’s beyond ‘the mask’.
Since the birth of her younger daughter Alicja turned her camera on children photographing their emotions, hopes and dreams.
