Aldona-Kmiec-International-Photographer-Australia4 I have a travel bug – ever since I remember I wanted to explore the world. People, journey, new experiences, different cultures, languages.

I’m a Professional Artist and Photographer. Born in Poland, I migrated to United Kingdom in 2004 and to Australia in 2009. I’ve been transient for over a decade and did a lot of international travel. In 2008 I completed my photography course at the London Metropolitan University and won a first prize at the photo competition in London. A year later I made the decision of moving to Australia and start everything from scratch. After a short spell in Queensland, I set up a local freelance photography business & fell in love with the climate of Ballarat Goldfields. Following my photographic career In the UK, I have been busy networking to set up my freelance photography/art business and work as a commercial photographer in Queensland and regional Victoria. My passion for community engagement and community development evolved to volunteering for many local and international community organisations. I’m a proud Sponsor and Supporter of APEX Australia Teenage Fashion Awards and love my experience of getting the best out of young people realising their dreams.

Locally, I have been involved in wide array of editorial and public art projects and commercial photography for private clients and small businesses. My current projects include facilitating We R You large format paste up photography project – a community engagement project modelled on the global JR’s Inside Out initiative; a photographic portrait project 100 Faces documenting people I meet on my journey and Under the Floorboards commissioned Artist Residency with Uniting Care Ballarat, where I created large format mosaic portraits to be auctioned off with proceedings going to fund the Uniting Care Ballarat services.

I enjoy representing the community as a Multicultural Ambassador. As part of this fantastic CoB initiative I enjoy sharing my story and inspire people to explore each other’s cultures. I’m also working on a pilot book project focusing on migrants stories. I’m a big supporter of International Education Programs and our home regularly hosts international students to Australia.

My artwork is held internationally in private collections. If you’d like to say hi, buy a print for your condo or chat about your new project – please get in touch on www.aldonakmiec.com

ordicalder2012-150_DSC9543 Statement
The light draws in shadows, on artificial media constructed by human hands, geometric shapes, signs and symbols. I photograph the Truth That underlies the real and see these designs Light, the unchanging values ​​of Sacred Geometry in our changing reality, properties that underlies all structures of natural formations, Organic or Inorganic, on Earth and in Kosmos; underlies even a thought.
The Light to create aesthetic beauty in the forms of everyday insinuating.

Imagination, Creativity, search Surreal, or Realism and Spiritualism are prominent brands in my work. Photographs are taken in moments of respite from the real, mystical moments That convey the silence and poetry of life, when “all elements harmonize” with my mind.

My Photographic Poetic, The underlies, is inspired by Geometry, History, Graphic Design and Music. I’m influenced by Surrealism and the other Modern “schools” like Suprematism “a free art practical purposes and committed to pure visuality plastic.”
Malevich also speaks of “realism”, argues there … behind the visible world another world, a kind of fourth dimension beyond the three to which the human senses have access, that “no objective world” referred to a higher order relationship between the phenomena – sort of “spiritual energy Abstract” – which is invisible but no less real. ”

To the Compose new readings of objects or scenes now common to today’s look, and create aesthetic beauty, I do cut That abstracts the “canonical information” photography Appropriate by channels of communication, and commercial production systems, Which are the tentacles of capitalism to strengthen the domination of Human Being and Maintain the system.
