Kat Puchowska -  Portraiture and Travel Photographer
I am Kat, born in Poland, and currently based in Barcelona, Spain, and London, United Kingdom. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Art and Photography from Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom and have also studied at the Universitat de Barcelona in Spain.
My early work in photography focused on fashion, but my passion for culture and travel soon led me to explore cultural, urban, and documentary photography. My first exhibition, "Mireu Me," showcased images of local Catalan men in Barcelona, highlighting their unique fashion styles and favourite spots around the city. This exhibition was displayed in Nottingham and London in 2017.
In 2018, I travelled across Morocco, capturing the vibrant street life and immersing myself in the local culture and cuisine. The following year, in 2019, I presented an online exhibition featuring street portraits from my journey through Egypt, spanning from the north to the south of the country.
In 2020, my travels took me to Portugal, where I discovered a rich tapestry of diversity. I documented the lives of Indian agricultural workers in the small villages of Odemira and Moncarapacho, shedding light on their living and working conditions in a European country.
Currently, I am working independently on a collection of photo essays and audiovisuals that tell the unique and heartfelt stories of immigrants residing in Barcelona. Through my lens, I continue to capture the essence of diverse cultures and the human experience, finding a peaceful moment in the chaotic world we live in.
