About Artist

Natasha Pszenicki

Natasha left Oxford University in 2002 disillusioned, knowing an academic path was never going to lead her to satisfying her passions for the visual aesthetic. What she did take from the experience however was a love for the truth in people. Natasha's photographic experience comes from a rich editorial cauldron, mixing portraiture with still life and fashion on a daily basis across various publications and platforms. DMG Media has been her professional home for some years, though she has always pushed herself to pursue personal projects. She has recently won international acclaim for her work in Fine Art, Portraiture and Product Advertising. Shooting Still Life as well as personalities has carved out a creative path that few would expect, but resulting in recognition across multiple disciplines, all of which feed each other. Capturing people has always been at the heart of what drives her - sometimes even forgetting to look at frames as she shoots... More recently, motivations in creative projects have become even more personal - exploring more conceptual representations of internal thought.
