Interview with the Artist Katarzyna Widmanska

In my photography there is death, darkness, weirdness and elements of mysticism.

Q: How long have you been an artist? Please tell us a little about your chosen medium.

A: I have started to take photos about ten years ago. I discovered photography then and nearly at once I realized this is it-the best medium that will allow me to express myself.

Q: Have you been trained, and if so from what institution? Or are you self taught?

A: I’ve finished art studies but as a photographer I’m self-taught.

Interview with Elena Ismail

Q: Tell us about your styling and design work and what first sparked an interest in these creative mediums.

A: I grew up in Palestine in the midst of war. I can’t say I was poor but the nature of life at the time didn’t allow us to have access to many things people take forgranted. For example for christmas, when my mom would setup the tree, we couldn’t just go to a store and find a variety of ornaments, so my mom taught us how to make our own from papermache.

Or when we had to stay home for several days under siege, my mom would keep us busy by showing us how to make marionette puppets, also from papermache, so we can create a play. And when I got my first Barbie, I only had the one dress that came with her, so I started to sew because I wanted her to have a change of outfits like what I saw on TV. I grew up with the notion that anything I can’t buy, I can make with basic materials and a bit of imagination.

Christopher John Ball – Exclusive Interview

Christopher John Ball is a widely exhibited and published, award winning fine arts photographer, playwright, writer, publisher, curator, arts juror and lecturer. With over 30 years experience as an artist – his work is held within public and private collections worldwide and he is, together with artist Paul Woods, co-founder of The Association of Erotic Artists – an international academic and campaigning body committed to working towards a greater acceptance of the erotic arts whilst defending the genre from the dual threats of censorship and intolerance.

After several years within a commercial photographic background, including running his own studio, Chris became increasingly drawn to the use of photography as a fine arts medium and this, along with exploring the role of the arts within the community and education, has been the direction his work has taken him.

In the 1980’s Chris was a founder member of ‘Action Factory’ – a community arts group, based in Lancashire, created with the aim of democratising and expanding the role of the arts within the community – in particular amongst disadvantaged groups.
Given that he has been disabled since youth – Chris maintains an active role in the campaign to promote disability awareness and rights.
