Cognitive Bodies fine art project

The aim of the project is to capture a very sensual collaboration of the human’s body and extreme emotions that expresses both the physical and spiritual harmony. It is to immortalize the beauty of shape, the purity of art and the uniqueness of existence.
Photographer’s job is to emotionally connect with the sitters to be able to recognize and understand what feelings each individual person and its connection to the body can express. At the same time each person involved must have a clear understanding of the Photographers vision that is to deeply concentrate on emotion and the way it can be expressed through the body and its unique language.
Human’s body and its posture disclose both physical and mental mood and state of mind. All good and bad, happy and sad emotions can be read from people’s faces and the way we appear.

Cognitive Bodies

There is always something unique I find in people I work with. There is also something mystical that let my brain relax while on the set or location. I would never ever change and do something else instead for life and for living. It really fuels me 100%. I started working on a new series of nude photographs yesterday and it is something I will be continuing for the next few months as I follow quite intense research :)

Marta Kochanek 2015 Review

2015 only brings some great memories regarding all jobs I was involved in. Called more than once a workaholic, I am of course concentrating on my work development, progress and future plans first. None of these would ever happen without all beautiful people I met, worked with and tightened up some great relationships with.
A massive thanks to all my friends, fans and followers for never ending support and inspiration :) I can only promise to work more and harder and dedicate a little bit more time to socialize (heheh yeah... that is a promise!)
