Photographer Agatha A. Nitecka
_ i work quietly:
1. taking pictures in some far away lands. i come back and print my own newspaper series.
2. traveling on trains for days. i usually go to cities covered with snow.
4. sitting in the rain on film sets in remote locations. i’m happily represented by united agents.
3. wandering the yorkshire moors. a website dedicated to my film work is here: film.agathaa.com
5. when i’m not on a set or on a train i take portraits.
6. i’m now london based again, after having lived and worked in paris, france and st petersburg, russia.
It all begins with your images. Take your camera and compose a photo. Once you have your image, the enhancing is in full effect. Choose from a collage of inspired frames, shapes and patterns. Watch as your image is “fragmented” instantly into a myriad of prism-like glass pieces.

Partly inspired by the true story of the Salton Sea, a failed river redirection to assist Californian agricultural development at the turn of the 20th century, Rafael Anton Irisarri’s “The Unintentional Sea” mimics the ideas of transformation of place.
During the 1950s, this ecological disaster was seized and rebranded by corporate land developers, flipping it into a dream getaway destination for West Coast elites. Before long, record temperatures and a rising level of water mineralization led to the mass death of fish and other wildlife, and in turn so too did the resort town’s population, leaving behind a vast post-human deserted wasteland. This unintentional sea had given life and now has taken it away.5 hearts
