ABOUT ANEMONA KNUT

BIOGRAPHY

I was born in communistic Poland to a couple of free-spirited artists in November 1980. My father was the one who has introduced me to photography from my youngest years and taught me using our old Praktica camera. He was the one setting up darkroom in our bathroom and teaching me the magic of appearing images.

I have graduated with MA in Communication and Journalism at University of Warsaw, and photography has always been very important part of my life, however until now, mostly personal, and private. I have published as a journalist in some major titles in Poland, including Newsweek or Gazeta Wyborcza Warszawska, as well as some independent and smaller print specialist and lifestyle magazines.

In 2008 I moved to London and 4 years ago I have settled in a small coastal town, Deal. I have previously done some minor commercial work, usually supporting the companies I worked for with photography, mostly in hospitality industry. I have never published as a photographer, the year of 2022 is my debut.

Now a mum of three young boys, working professionally part time I spend all my spare time cultivating the passion for photography. Since my children were born, I have developed my skills in digital photography, which was a foreign ground to me, and then I came back to my roots with shooting more and more analogue in both 35 and 120 formats. I have also learned how to open myself to others, and how to tell the stories and share ideas I think are important through photographs.
