Karolina Wojtas born in1996 in Poland is a photographer who gets inspiration from random objects, children’s fantasies and her childhood memories, creating a colourful world of experiment and endless fun, transforms this material into walk-in installations.

Inspiration may become for her a mess in the garden of her grandfather or a huge slide. Through her exhibition, it is impossible to slip, sometimes covered with brocade or balloons. But you can feel like a child – play, abandon and scrounge.

She graduated from Lodz Film School in Poland and Institute of Creative Photography in the Czech Republic.
