The title for the project is “Almost nun left” and it is a documentary project that focuses on women that decided to pursue a life-calling to be a nun. They stepped back from mainstream life and dedicated their life to the Lord. All photographs were taken in Bothwell, Scotland and will focus on Poor Clare Monastery. The idea of committing to religious life seemed to be outdated (no nuns joined the poor Clare Monastery in Bothwell for 20 years), but at the same time the topic is extremely interesting and there is no sufficient information about living in a monastery.

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.
