Martyna Szczesna is an artist and photographer living and working in Brooklyn. She received a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Fine Art. Exploring entropy, memory and longing, her work constructs fractured landscapes that deal with notions of place and cultural identity using photography, collage and sculpture. Her photographs run the gamut from documentary and portraiture (pirate utopias and alternate economies) to the ephemeral and textural. Her dimensional collage work mines the formal aspects of photography to probe its abstract qualities. In addition to working with Casera Era, she regularly collaborates with TradeSchool teaching photography classes.
