Layers of suffering
Photograph inspired by Emmanuel Levinas’s “Useless Suffering”.
“All evil refers to suffering. It is the impasse of life and being, their absurdity, where pain does not come, somehow innocently, ‘to colour’ consciousness with affectivity. The evil of pain, the harm itself, is the explosion and most profound articulation of absurdity”.

Talia Krasicka is a Polish self-taught photographer based in Warsaw, with an academic background in humanities. Her photographic work – inspired both by her life experience and her cultural background – tends naturally towards fine art photography with a careful attention to both aesthetic quality and meaningful content. She is attracted to all kind of internally vibrant phenomena able to trigger poetic and philosophical readings. In her intensely emotional and reflective photographs, she explores different dimensions of human experience of being in the world and of being a world. Her artistic effort focuses on investigating the subtle connections existing between the hidden and the exposed, the visible and the invisible, the conscious and the unconscious. With her own visual language she distills immaterial contents permeating the material world as filtered through human consciousness. Abstract thinking and oneiric perceptions are, she says, what anchors her best in the reality ineluctably modeled by the intrinsic contradictions of human temporality and the fundamental incommunicability of individual inner life. She conceives her work merely as a trigger for the viewers’ internal dialogue with themselves and their parallel personal work of becoming who they are. You can find more of her work JPG and her site
