Often in a hurry, we pass various things, objects and do not see what is invisible at the first glance. Sometimes it is worth stopping, contemplating a moment, giving our interior time to open to the surrounding world.

Then even a stone slab can invite us to another world, let us discover a new landscape, or bring us longing for places we have not visited for a long time.

These paintings, abstractions created by nature have been an object of interest for me for several years, often being an inspiration for further work, creation of other images.

Wioletta Sedlak (Letta Sed) graduated Chemistry at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland. In 2012, she began studying Photography at the Warsaw School of Photography and Graphic Design, which gave her the opportunity to express herself through both creative photography, visual art and experimental photography, as well as helped her develop in reportage and documentary photography.
Sebastiao Salgado's work inspired her and encouraged her to take photography of people in their natural environment: in the place of their work and life.
