My name is Kora and I love to take pictures.
When I was a kid growing up in Poland, my older brother received a Zenit camera for his birthday one year. I stared at him and his new toy with envy, convinced that it was me that deserved to have it, in spite of the fact that I had no clue how to use it. One might think it was greed and bad sister-ness that caused this jealousy, but I think it was fate. Eventually I managed to get my paws on his camera and years later I would teach myself how to use it, with all its buttons and dials, and it would lay a foundation for a lifelong love of this art form.
Each image that I choose to share is a captured moment that has affected me in some way. It is an expression of myself and how I see the people and things around me.
Do you have any hidden talents?
Yes, I can make a loud popping sound with my mouth. It was taught to me and my brother by my dad as a way to locate us should he ever lose us in a crowd. It's happened.
What is your favourite photography subject?
I can truly say that I enjoy shooting anything and everything so my favourite subject would be what I happen to be shooting that day.
Are you a morning or a night person?
Both. Can you be both? Because I think I'm both. As much as I enjoy being up at the crack of dawn, I equally enjoy late, late night conversations and impromptu dance parties.
What is your favourite kind of sandwich?
Grilled cheese. Anytime. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. But it has to be good bread and cheese and it's a bonus if it has tomato in it.
What advice would your past self give your future self?
Never go anywhere without a camera! You never know what photo opportunity might present itself.
Which animals scare you most and why?
These would be things with more than 4 legs. Scorpions, millipedes, earwigs. Gross.
Where would you most like to travel?
I will take any opportunity to travel anywhere but if I had to pick just one place, today it would be Morocco.
What is your favourite candy?
I could eat all the delicious Hedgehogs that exist but I don't discriminate when it comes to chocolate.
