Some pictures tell a thousand words. Usually, I try to capture one.
Complementing her work in the medium of language is Osiatynska’s photography, which also consists of “removing the unnecessary.” As a collection, Osiatynska’s photos are a dynamic autobiography. As individual images, they are clear illustrations of archetypal concepts and universal phenomena.
Over the past twenty years Osiatynska has evolved a style of narrative minimalism that features precisely framed personal moments and aestheticized everyday scenes. The resulting clutter-free images are simultaneously intimate and detached, eluding classification as art, documentary or commercial photography. Osiatynska’s archive is both family album and stock catalog, featuring uniquely emotional photos that lend themselves to documenting subjects, illustrating meanings and transmitting a mood. Osiatynska also produces commissioned work in portrait, landscape and product photography.
Currently, Osiatynska shoots in JPG format with the Fujifilm X-T20 fitted exculsively with prime lenses. She subsequently applies tonal adjustments and lens corrections in Adobe Lightroom.
