Joanna Szproch is a daughter, a sister, and a mother. She is a woman who takes surrealistic photographs about women, bodies, nudity, and intimate relationships. She is a believer in fairytales and is obsessed with capturing the magic moment of a situation.
Born in Warsaw 14.06.1979, to parents who were creative artists, dreamers, and expressive musicians, Joanna was quickly introduced to the wild world inside the darkroom by her father. Intrigued by the drama of photography, she went on to study it at Streminski Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. After graduating with her masters, she and her new child Lena moved back to the Polish capital.
Working internationally, professionally and commercially, Joanna quickly developed her signature photographic style. A mixture of vulgarity and innocence, saturated colour and dowdiness, high technology and analogue, her images are a celebration of contrasts.
Searching for new challenges, Joanna relocates again, this time away from her and her daughter’s hometown to the German capital. It is here, where she has wiped her artistic palette clean again, re-imagined her creative quest, and met her internal child. As an adult woman, Joanna realizes this internal child isn’t so dissimilar from her mature self after all. This fluctuating boundary between old and young, adult and child, innocence and knowing are strong themes in Joanna’s artistic work and life.
Szproch has recently completed a years-long collaboration with her muse Smilefomedaddy for her first Photobook. Other recent projects include work for both print magazines and designers, a series portraying Berlin bohemia, profiles of numerous creative and artistic persona, and a series of unconventional exhibition projects.
Since October 2016 Joanna Szproch teaches a seminar entitled “Art Direction and Photography” at HTK - Academy Of Design, Berlin.
In addition to her photography work, Joanna actively participates in the contemporary choir Gray Voice Ensemble, in Ok Project, a Christopher Kline musical, collaborates as a singer with musician Rob Gordon, makes videos with a contemporary dance director Tarren Johnson and experiments with curating of found images.
