Lives and works in Chicago, IL

Chicago-based photographer Marzena Abrahamik’s series A l’ouest unfolds like a daydream, drawing metaphors from the familiar. All loosely autobiographical, Abrahamik’s photographs suggest an unbound narrative of intimacy, femininity, and interpersonal dynamics, complex relationships that develop within the sequential relations of her images. 

Born in Poland, Marzena Abrahamik received her MFA in Photography from Yale University in 2013. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at Johalla Projects, Chicago (2015); the International Photography Festival, Tel-Aviv, Israel (2014); the Gallery of Classic Photography, Moscow, Russia (2013); Aperture, New York (2013); and the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, Boone, North Carolina (2012).
