A WEEK WITH KASIA TROJAK

Welcome to the 10th WEEKLY DOSE

Good morning Folks. It’s Monday and the  WEEKLY DOSE, your weekly dose of  documentary  increased with street photography, comes back!
This first weekly dose of 2018 is first of all for us the opportunity to wish you a delicious and incredible year!

We decided to dedicate this week to a young Polish photographer based in Los Angeles, the very talented Kasia Trojak. Kasia has many strings to her bow. In addition to being an incredible photographer, she is first known for her work as a « second unit director » on many films such as « The Greatest Showman » « The Revenant » or « Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol », « Live by Night »,…
Bur for us, she presents a powerful and sensitive street photography work made in Cuba.
We take this opportunity to remind you that you can of course contact us to propose complete series.

She has sent us 7 images from his wonderful work with which we will spend this week here, but also on our Facebook  and our Instagram

Happy New Year!

KASIA TROJAK

Kasia Trojak is a Polish-born, Los Angeles-based photographer, film producer and assistant director. She studied film at University of Southern California, photography at UCLA, and International Communications at the American University of Paris. Her recent video and photography projects focus on Cuba’s everyday urban life and youth culture. Her method is to document the streets in an uninterrupted, unscripted, raw and authentic way. Her first solo exhibition opened at the Altamira Gallery in Havana in December 2016.

While on an Irma relief trip in Santa Clara, i was visiting provinces affected by the hurricane. My friends and I came across kids finishing school. My friends were the perfect distraction for them, not to notice me and let me take this picture.

Trinidad. A boy playing, unintentionally posing with a cross.

Vinales. In Cuba, everyone is always working, fixing, re-building, hoping for a better future.

Cienfuegos. What can i say… A classic. A cliche. Call it what you want, you can’t walk by without taking a picture.

Havana. Back to a sports area…Trying to capture everything, but sports.

Old Havana. A family spotted through a window.

One of the most interesting places in Havana are the sports areas that are spread out throughout the city. Some are hidden and small some are huge and sometimes abandoned. While strolling through one of them in Centro Havana I saw a buy climbing and jumping through a fence.
