I think I am a female version of Peter Pan. Photographing a fantasy world, one that is slightly unreal, allows me to remain a child.
Children as the subject of my photos appeared with their coming into the world. They were and are the cause, they determine the choice of subject of my photos. Photography for me is not only to catch the moments lived with children is also a record of my own emotions, sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker.
Either gazing, or with their dreams fleeing, Magdalena Berny ’s models invite us to follow them in their travel to the edge of the world. No matter where we come from and where we’re heading for, there are stories that must be told in present tense, with buried certainties as only language. Thanks to her close relationship with her children and thanks to her very pictorial approach, the Polish photographer finally manages to reinvent the imaginary part that still lives inside us, and from time to time she shares out back this innocence part to those who didn’t dream anymore.
