Fine Art Photographer
Karolina Skorek graduated with a Masters Degree in Glass Design from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, Poland. After graduation, she moved to North Wales and got a Masters Degree in Illustration.
She is attracted to the light, which was used by the Great Masters of painting.
In 2009, as part of her Master’s Degree work, Karolina produced a series of photographs recreating the painterly effects used by the masters of painting in photography. This is how her great passion for painting and drawing was reborn in photography. Combining the Chiaroscuro principle, and the Sfumato technique, she uses dark and light contrasts to create depth. Through layering colours and tones she creates soft and imperceptible transitions. Combined with the love for people and a strong creative urge, a nowadays portrait in the light of the past are born.
