Aldona Kmieć is a Polish-born photographic artist working in Ballarat and Melbourne. Drawing on her childhood spent on a dairy farm in communist era Poland, Aldona’s photography explores memory and identity. Working mainly in portrait, landscape and documentary photography, she often combines photographs with other elements such as sound, the written word and constructed physical objects, Aldona also creates site-specific installations and immersive art murals.
Working with clients who collect art is an exhilarating experience and also a great privilege. Art can reveal so much about a person, it has the power to transform a space into something deeply personal and completely unique.
Aldona has exhibited extensively; her photography is held in public and private collections. Her works have been featured on The Block Show 2019, The Design Files Australia and Better Homes & Gardens TV show. With over 12 years of professional experience in the photographic & digital industry, Aldona has been the recipient of a number of prizes, including Under the Floorboards studio residency award, Ballarat Art Foundation’s Eureka Art Awards and Centre for Contemporary Photography’s Leica Salon prize. She was also a finalist in the Bowness Photography Prize and Maggie Diaz Photography Prize.
