Katarzyna Wąsowska is a photographer and book artist based in Poznań, Poland. Her art practice juggle between subjective, unreal creation photography and documentary. Referring to scientifical and parascientifical literature, researching the archives or interviews she tries to construct stories about specific places or certain communities, far from the facts but reliable historically.

In her works she often focuses on issues connected with migration or its destiny. She is mostly interested in the problematic of constructing identity and how people define themselves and the land of their origins. Recently she is involved in collective photographic research about polish migration to South America. It happens that she gets out of the material world and enters other dimensions of perceiving the world, exploring the paranormal events and believes not connected with any religious system. Finds collective creation as the best way for making photography as permanent process of putting individual thoughts in doubts.

She was born in 1990 by the Polish seaside in Gdańsk. Graduated in Photography on Academy of Arts in Poznań. She is also part of Ostrøv publishing collective.
