We have all had periods when something weighs on us, an anxiety, a problem or just depression. I want to capture and preserve the feeling when we find a solution and the weight lightens. A relief that makes stones lift.
I've had some really tough years behind me with divorce and depression. For a while, my anxiety of failure, bitterness, sadness and anxiety kept eating me up from within. The pain of seeing my children suffer and not being able to alleviate it because I myself was too hurt increased the bad conscience. One day I got enough of my demons and have been actively working on my thoughts. Slowly but surely, I have managed to improve my self-esteem and overcome my destructive thoughts. And only now am I starting to feel - I feel good. The better I feel, the more different pieces start to fall into place and it feels like heavy stones come loose from my chest.

About Katarina Wos
My name is Katarina Wos. I was born in Stockholm in 1980. I studied photography at Kulturama, Sweden and in Poland at ASP in Gdansk.
I am a happy photo crazy photographer who has a hard time stopping myself when I start to photograph. I have now taken over 10,000 portraits and I often hear that I have great patience.
I have always liked to photograph people and still do, but during my maternity leave I hadn't time to book portrait sessions. Then I began to explore the nature and surroundings around me. I challenged myself and chose the most boring thing I could think of. It was trees. It fit well during my stroller walk. The more I photographed trees, more I started to love trees. Nature is the best place to find peace and well-being in.
Most of my photographs are double exposed in the camera. I got devoted to double exposure after accidentally double-exposing an entire film. Now I’m working with a digital camera.

"I won the daydream in the spring and was so happy! The picture conveys what I love so much about Aspudden, the greenery, the beautiful houses and the gentle light. Thanks Katarina Wos" Agneta Eriksson
"Katarina Wos is an amazing artist who touches me deeply when expressing herself in her double-exposed photographs. I always find something to buy!
When I was at an exhibition with photographs of Katarina Wos, which had to do with pregnancy and toddler time, I fell into tears, she showed in her pictures exactly what I experienced and felt.
I find that Katarina Wo's compositions are beautiful and exciting, I can still find new details that make me not tired of the motifs! "Helena Svensson
