Kmieć invites us to explore the boundaries of our own imaginations and to embrace the power of creativity in her new series, Winterbloom as part of Ballarat International Foto Biennale. These fluid and bright photographs were made in the depths of winter during COVID-19 as an act of creative rebellion. She has used a freedom of colour and movement to create this series of visually captivating self-portraits.
