Welcome to my Seeking Beauty in Ordinary photography blog. I am Poland based fine art photographer, graphic designer & web designer. For almost 20 years, I used to work as an Art and English teacher at all school levels. As a designer working on commission, the needs and tastes of my clients are priority. While photography is my way of self-expression, my true love and passion. I took it up in 2009 and each day I’ve been learning something new about photography, technique, gear, etc. Looking at the world through the lens made me see everything in a sharper way, more consciously. I have learnt to notice beauty in things commonly perceived as ugly, ordinary as well as I have learnt to sense some mystic energy surrounding me each day.

I hope you enjoy my through-the-lens vision of a world I share with you on this site and find my Art language tips useful. Your comments are an invaluable feedback to me.For more information about my work visit my Painted with Light website. Contact with via my BEHANCE Pro Site.

Inspirations - Lost Souls

People all are lost souls who wander around the world throughout their lives in search of happiness. The few lucky ones, after long years of huge effort, learning, thinking, trying, failing and deepening their self-consciousness, find it finally within themselves, realizing that the subject of their quest was always with them.
To do so, they must have courage to say "no" when the majority would eagerly say "yes". They must have courage to follow their bumpy path, while others run smoothly along a motorway. They must have strength to endure the hardships of their journey and long painful hours of solitude. Such people are like my Animated Trees below, where everything around my seem dead (b&w parts of my photographs are a symbol of dead), while they are strong and living a true life. The energy that animates their souls makes them colourful and standing out from the crowd. They are the salt of the earth. 

The post is dedicated to a gifted artist Katarina Fagerstrom Levring,who inspired me to write it.

  1. Danuta, thank you so much for your beautiful words. There are far to few people out there that really understands how hard this path of ours can be. Nowadays I find myself walking with my head raised high and my eyes meeting other peoples instead of shying away, greeting them "Hi I am Katarina, and I am an artist!" Never thought that would come true:))


Thank you for visiting my blog and for your comment. It is invaluable feedback that lets me make progress with my creative work.
I am pleased to meet you:)
