Young Dionysus

  • Photographer
    Natalia Krezel

The project called "young Dionysus"( ancient Greek god of wine) focuses on alcohol addiction in Poland. Poland has always faced the stereotype of the drunkard country and the problem has to be highlighted. The above-average level of alcohol consumption is especially seen in small towns and villages, with less awareness of the problem and reduced access to education. Series was taken in my hometown -a small village with s a population of 1,400 in Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-central Poland, called Dabrowa Chelminska and present people destroyed by alcohol addiction.

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.
