I'm Joanna Wizmur, portrait & music photographer based in Berlin. I often travel around Europe together with my life partner who’s a musician. I connect these two worlds of music and photography, working also as a music manager, which gives me much flexibility and the opportunity to grow not only as a photographer but also as a human being. What interests me most is the human connection, energy, impact, reaction, ego.
I used to think that in my work I want to search for authenticity in people. Over time, I realised that authenticity is something so subtle that it’s difficult to define. To me, it has a lot to do with being confident in your life situation and doing what you do with passion, focus, devotion and aligned with your inner voice.
As a photographer, I sometimes have 3 hours but in some cases only 10 minutes with you, my partner in this project. It would be arrogant for me to say that I can guess who you really are, by looking through my lense. Since you’re born, you are influenced by people, things, experiences. You grow, you learn, you’re conditioned.
So who are you? To me, the question remains open. But at least, I can grab a piece of your story, a little bit of you - I’m always interested to see the result of this energy created by you and me during the photoshoot.
