The Queen

  • Photographer
    Natalia Krezel

The portrait is a part of a series called "The Queen" focusing on environmental issues. It is ironically called" The Queen" that symbolizes modern man: proud, vein and almighty. The image focuses on environmental issues people have to face today and human attitude towards them, indifference and ignorance. A portrait of a woman holding a fish, that she will consume for her supper is full of plastic (ocean pollution and the impact that plastic has on the marine life). Aware of the problem, The Queen will ignore it and will eat her fish.

I am a photography student based in Edinburgh with a keen interest in portraiture, documentary and staged photography. Born in Poland and currently living in Scotland. My aim is to create images that are reliant on emotion and narrative. Literature, arts, and film continue to be key influences on my work.
