BIO

Marta Wlusek is a Berlin based Polish artist. She graduated in MA Photography from University of the Arts London in 2016. In her practice, which extends beyond the traditional notion of medium specificity, she combines elementary photographic means with conceptual ideas to explore the boundaries of what can be considered photography.
