ULA WIZNEROWICZ (b. 1986) is a Polish documentary photographer currently based
in Amsterdam. Her photographs have been exhibited widely with solo shows in Italy,
England and Poland.


Working mainly within portraiture and social documentary photography, Wiznerowicz documents
a particularly unique Polish/English perspective using the camera to explore narrative
conventions with a powerful subtlety and poise. Her careful handling of subjects and their
emotive stories has won her acclaim with most recently a Surrau Photo Win, shortlisted in 2014
Daylight Photo Award, Jurors Pick FotoVisura Grant, along with Ideas Tap Portfolio Award in 2012
and Channel 4/Saatchi Gallery Prize and D&AD Best New Blood Prizes in 2010.
Ula studied a BA Hons Degree in Photography at Middlesex University (2010).

 

A short documentary film about her work was made and aired by Channel 4:
