More from Saatchi Art:
As an adult, a mother and an immigrant to Britain, her photography has flourished into a substantial body of portraiture. Perhaps the most evocative of her works are her exquisitely emotive self-portraits that seem to carry the dark spirit of the forest from her childhood as well as potently baring the scars of modern womanhood. They show vulnerability and intimate eroticism as well as deep sense of isolation and alienation. It is these portraits that have been most published and exhibited in both her Polish homeland and in the UK. Four years ago Justyna begun to collaborate with her daughter Nell on a project Childhood Lost. She is currently producing new works in her adopted home town of Hove, where she lives with her daughter.
