georgia Krawiec is a Polish and German photo artist. She deals with the themes of identity and deceleration, examines the relationship of man to nature in her projects and addresses the omnipresent surveillance of society.

She realises her works with the help of photo-archaic media, such as the pinhole camera, the photogram or through old printing processes (such as the calotype or cyanotype). She creates photographs, photo collages but also photo objects and installations.

The experimental approach as well as the manual and original aspects of photography are of central importance to the artist. georgia Krawiec builds her cameras herself and thus accompanies the process of creating the image from the very beginning.
