Justyna Neryng (Poland/UK) - Childhood Lost

Justyna Neryng is a fine art photographer from Poland, living and working in Brighton, whose photography has flourished into a substantial body of portraiture. Four years ago Justyna begun to collaborate with her daughter Nell on an on-going autobiographical project Childhood Lost, exploring the nature of portraiture and memory: “I am producing a series of portraits that evoke, characters that populate this world we know as childhood. A court of character’s from myths and dreams. The images are aesthetically inspired by portraiture from the Golden Age of Dutch painting. By drawing on paintings as inspiration I am hoping to give a timeless feel to the final images. Key to the project is the painstaking styling and prop building, which I am using to evoke these different persona played out by my daughter.”
