Collaboration with Polish Women Photographers Community

Collaboration and support in the artistic world is priceless!

Polish Women Photographers community is a space for women and non-binary people for whom self-realization is important and the need to speak up on important social issues through the medium of photography. PWP wants to inspire, support, and promote their work.

Polish women photographers collaboration with BAV

PWP is a very dynamic community with a very engaged audience. Our collaboration started with the Human Body is Art 2021 edition and occurred very fruitful! Many artists applied thanks to their publication and several of them made it to the book!

Małgorzata Wakuluk, the founder of PWP, has written very encouraging words to their audience:

“I personally recommend this initiative to you. You already know me well enough that I am constantly trying to encourage you to meet all the possibilities that will help you realize your photographic passion and continuous artistic development.
I have already tested on myself many times that contact gives contact. And even if it doesn’t bring you the big win right away, it keeps you growing and the impossible becomes more and more possible.”

We couldn’t agree more!

BAV is very open to such collaboration. If you happen to represent an artistic community, art gallery, or other artistic groups, and you would be interested in a partnership with BAV, please contact us at admin@bruxellesartvue.com .

Here are Human Body is Art 2021 edition participants who have applied through the PWP:

Marta Szyszka in Bruxelles Art Vue collaboration
Sami Plapis in Bruxelles Art Vue
Katarzyna Leszczynska Kaszuba in Bruxelles Art Vue
Iwona Suszycka in Bruxelles Art Vue
Marcelina Szczuraszek in Bruxelles Art Vue

Bruxelles Aert Vue Human Body is Art gallery

Gallery, part 2 – selection from Human Body is Art edition

This gallery presents to you several selected works from the Bruxelles Art Vue – Human Body is Art 2021 edition!

Few weeks back we have already published the first part of this series, which you may find here.

Most of the photos in this gallery wouldn’t make it to our social media, without a risk of blocking our feeds, therefore let us give them the visibility they deserve in a different way!

You may see these and many other works in a free e-book – download here.

Evert Obdeijn

Black and white photography makes the female body special, with the use of light and shadow giving it a high emotional value. In particular, the directions of Roberto Bogers, photography teacher
at the Center for the Arts in Eindhoven, inspired me in this special corner of photographing people.

Alexis Stefanides

@alexisstefanides

Hello there, I’m Alexis Stefanides, dreamer, artist, and slightly addicted to coffee and music. I am guided by a great feeling of LOVE about LIFE. My biggest loves are my beautiful wife and my little son. Art is a personal thing that touches everyone differently. We all have our own unique style and creative vision that we see in life. My studies in psychology made me want to find a way to capture the connection between people or with their inner world. For me moment matters! So, photography was the path.

Margherita Franzoni

@lamarghemargo

I was born, live, and work in Ferrara-IT. My background is sociology, I’m a conferences organizer and I collaborate in the organization of the Riaperture Photofestival Ferrara. My interest in photography began a long time ago but I started shooting seriously in 2017. Today photography is the „bubble” where I can express myself freely, the images are my words. I define my language as a kind of poetics
of small things, a very intimate search where images are most often a reflection of my inner world.

Tatum Kempers

Tatum Kempers’ photographic work consists of self-portraits that she makes using various techniques. The process is like a diary to her. With this, she examines her inner conflicts. These photos are from the series „The Rules Are Broken,” in which she reflects on the pandemic.
Tatum Kempers lives in the Netherlands. She has been working as an artist and photographer since graduating from the School of Photography in 2014. She exhibits both nationally and internationally.

Nina Schönian-Söllig

@arteriaart

I was born on May 2nd, 1980, I am married and the mother of three wonderful children. I work in my studio under the name Arteria Art mainly in oil on canvas, but I use a variety of techniques and teach as a lecturer in the visual arts. I exhibit at home and abroad and have won several nominations and placements of various art prizes. My style is figurative painting, although that was never a conscious choice as more of a kind of birthmark.

Stay tuned, we will soon publish more Gallery posts in the BAV’s news!

Human Body is Art – front cover winner!

“White Widow” by Kelly Heselmans

In one of our previous posts, you will find a list of special rewards for participants in our publications – Cherries on BAV’s cake!

One of these prizes is to be chosen to be printed on a book cover! Today we announce the winner of the front cover print of Human Body is Art 2021 edition – Kelly Heselmans

“White Window” is about the human body, beauty, story, and emotions. We see how a model transforms into a symbol and uses this extraordinary ability to share emotions and a story of the author’s life with us. We see a very original pose, in the photo which is simple and the model’s body is the only mean of powerful expression.  

This is what Kelly says about the story behind her work:

“This photo is about leaving a former life, one that I didn’t belong in, one that was being lived for me, not by me. Escaping the web that was woven by the cult I grew up in. Letting go of a marriage, friends, and family. Trying to find my own way of thinking and feeling, without resentment. Doing what’s right for my life.

The model in the photo is my sister Lindsey, she had her own path to follow, healing wounds of a similar past. We came together in this project, facing the life we left behind, grateful for our new way of being.”
