Kasia Zmokla was born in Poland. Over the past 10 years, she has travelled and lived in various countries, including Poland, Ireland, the UK, Italy, France, India and the US. She currently resides and works on the Mediterranean island of Malta. Kasia perceives photography as a living path that is at the same time both captivating and constantly challenging.
When asked about her work, she says, "I like to discover where my boundaries lie and to be surprised by what my subjects bring to the photograph. I am fascinated by people's unique personalities. I search for individuals that capture my imagination. It's an intuitive and unpredictable operation. I love the freedom of this process, as it allows, and perhaps encourages, unexpected moments to happen."
She received her formal training at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland and graduated as a Master of Fine Arts in 2003.
