My Bio
I'm an amateur photographer and model. I'm interested in urban exploration, alternative fashion, goth/punk/deathrock etc. culture. Anti-conservative as well as anti-hipster. Pansexual genderqueer feminist open for relationships :). Keen DIYer, esp. when it comes to making and repairing electronic equipment or bikes. I love the utility and city sort, and the whole "cycle chic" thing really appeals to me.

Coming back?

I've had a creative block lasting a few years, but now it's 2018, it's time to start making art again, to experiment, to resist and fight, to love, and if need be, to punch some lowlifes in the face. I've been working for the Book Art Museum in Lodz, Poland for 4 years. Mostly all kinds of maintenance and technical stuff. Like, build and set up a computer network, give technical support to some clueless Outlook user of the baby boomer generation, repair a few machines, work on Monotype casting machines...

(the quotes, not the comment in italic) And I say: Oscar Mike Golf, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?! This is Foxtrot Uniform Bravo Alpha Romeo! (check NATO phonetic alphabet if confused) Can't stop wondering why anyone has the audacity to say things like that... Remember - we're talking about making a verbatim digital copy, not the reproduction of an art work (especially a masterpiece), where a person who's imitating still has to show a lot of skill to make the work indistinguishable from the original. And putting the copy into c

Long time, no see. It's been over 4 years and almost 30k pageviews of being here at dA. I've been mostly lurking though; watching more and more people and faving their work, but not submitting anything of mine. That may be because I got discouraged from photographing by this disheartening feeling that I can't create anything great and original. Sure, there are many pics I'm proud of [my 2008/2009 urban exploration ones], but the creative vein had generally flown away. Add dying batteries and you can have a long break :). Recently, I bought some new battery packs, because I wanted to give my camera some workout... took it for a spin and reali
