About Joanna Szproch’s work
In her work with female models, Joanna Szprochs strives to reach the perfect balance between the prudish and the vulgar, the intellectual and the bodily, the form and the meaning. Her playful use of lighting and colors as well as allowing bursts of spontaneity during the shoots act as a counterpoise to her meticulous preparation. In carefully chosen locations and situations, Szproch brings out the individuality of each of her models, treating their right to express their sensuality with the utmost respect. The erotic atmosphere of her photographs thrives on a sense of raw authenticity contained in the perfect arrangement.
