Magdalena Wosinska captures a youthful energy, spontaneity and authentic sense of fun.  She shoots all the time, carrying a camera on her shoulder and preferring to be part of the moment, placing her lens in the middle of it all.

Her early personal work, in which Magdalena documented the lives of her friends emerging from the skate and metal music scenes, reveals her willingness to challenge accepted norms for a female photographer.  Her maturing style transfers this edge and vibrancy to her commercial and editorial work. Magdalena’s tough yet sunny California aesthetic encapsulates a mood of endless summers.  She uses ambient light and an uncluttered approach, creating images that retain the truth and rawness of impulsive snapshots.
