Anna Grzelewska - Julia wannabe

Anna Grzelewska is one of the laureates of Grand Prix, Fotofestiwal 2015. Her project Julia wannabe will be exhibited in ART-INKUBATOR between 28th May and 7th June 2015.

Project shows growing up of my daughter Julia. My purpose was to search for sources of woman’s identity and to approach to the moment when a girl becomes a woman. There is something ambiguous and perturbing in this transition. The culture pictures childhood as a land of happiness: sweet and innocent. Also, our memory tends to wipe any flaws out of this image. Shooting Julia I wanted to look at the process of growing up in a more complex way. It is not a reportage, a diary or family album, but an attempt to capture the universality of this time. It is also a photographic reinterpretation of the psychological process of transfer – the photographic image is the result of Julia’s experience and my own childhood memories.

The tittle of the project is a reference to „Madonna wannabe“ phenomenon. Girls who listen to Madonna’s music are dressing and doing make-up to look exactly like she does. With these external attributes they try to discover the essence of being Madonna, the essence of femininity she embodies. Paradoxically, it helps them to express themselves.
