Magdalena Wosinska

Magdalena Wosinska’s photography combines the real and the surreal, the mundane and the make believe.

Photographer Magdalena Wosinska‘s photographs scenes that swirl between life and art.

One photo will have the feel of a professionally instagrammed moment from a real life, and the next will be a beautifully composed portrait, or an ethereal scene that possesses Dali-esque surrealism.

Wosinska’s role in these photos, whether they are her genuine friends or are calculated and created appearances, remains a mystery. Her treatment of nudity, at once revealing and yet at the same time private and concealing, plays with this dualism. This provides a fitting metaphor for our online lives, where mobile phones capture moments that expose our private lives, while carefully projecting a certain version of it.

Wosinska’s photography, as it sometimes seems real, and then will suddenly appear surreal, asks a crucially relevant question of our self-presentation on Instagram and Facebook: is it real? Wosinska’s photography inhabits the space between the actual and the projected, between life and art. In doing so, she presents a world that feels somehow both authentic and magical.
