The colorful world of reptiles is a series of photos taken in 2020 in the vivarium. I took photos in direct contact with the animal using studio light. It was an amazing experience of colors and textures. Sometimes I felt it was dangerous. But I'm glad I took the risk and took pictures that are different from all my pictures so far.

I am from Lodz in Poland. I am a professor in The Lodz Film School. In photography I am concerned with visualisation of feminine body, sensuality, eroticism, beauty, ugliness and exclusion. What is essential in my work is the delicate perception of body. Besides her photographic creation I am involved in writing critical literary texts concerning issues of body, obscenity, disability, based on film, photography, advertisements.
