Zła uczennica


A collaboration with the Polish photographer Magdalena Franczuk that revolved around the notion of Lolita and coming of age. The title of this project 'Zła uczennica' means 'the bad schoolgirl' in Polish.

She was sitting at her desk, trying to do her biology homework. Something, however, prevented her from focusing. She tilted her head back and began to look at all the scratches and cracks on the ceiling. She narrowed her eyes to give an abstract shape to the map these lines make. The end of her fountain pen unwittingly wandered toward the open lips and gently dipped into a warm breath. The girl did not even notice when a single drop of ink dripped from the nib straight onto an unwritten piece of paper.
