Paulina Otylie Surys is a Polish born, UK based photographer and fine artist. Her images are a hybrid of vintage and modern, she uses innovative techniques, experimenting with mixes of toners, chemicals and inks over dry dyes to create this unique style. Vintage camera’s, are also a part of her arsenal, mostly 35mm, medium and large format film. Oil and gold leaf on silver gelatin evoke the past while the narrative becomes a bit disturbing.
Her latest series was for GARAGE Magazine, a ShowStudio collaboration, featuring The Alpines. Surys has also worked with VISION: China, SIMONE: France, and WHAT??. Although the “new kid on the block”, her style and vision is a great fit with fashion editorial and I am betting she will be on the scene for a long time.
