Inez Dawczyk

Siden 2015 har Inez været fotograf for RoskildeNyt. Hendes passion for fotografi blev født mens hun læste fotojournalistik på Volda College i Norge, og hun fik særlig interesse for at fotografere mennesker. Inez fotograferer i dokumentarisk stil kombineret med kreative indfald. I Inez’ personlige projekter foretrækker hun enkelthed som æstetisk metode for sit arbejde.
