Marta Pohlmann-Kryszkiewicz (b. 1978) studied photography under Peter Pillar and Astrid Klein at HGB Leipzig. Since graduation in 2016 she has exhibited intensively and her work is represented in several important collections in Germany as well as abroad.
Marta Pohlmann-Kryszkiewicz project ‘Natural Forms’ was selected from an open call to be part of 2018 Copenhagen Photo Festivals: Photo City. ‘Natural Forms’ is born out of a fascination of the way materials are constantly undergoing change, and in her work exploring this impermanence. With her camera she freezes the critical moment where something withers and dies, and the disturbing forms of decay are alternately fused and torn apart in monumental and virtuoso compositions of colours and shapes. ‘Natural Forms’ is both a tribute to beauty and a requiem for the dying building blocks of consumerism.
