This week we are joined by Karolina Kuras, Photographer for the National Ballet of Canada. Karolina was born in Poland where she spent her early years before her family moved to a small town outside of Toronto. As a child, Karolina was always surrounded by art, as her mother is a painter, and her father a musician. Kuras began ballet classes which she loved, but found her shyness kept her from enjoying the stage. After playing around with a camera, she found a new source of artistic expression, and by the time she was 19 she had started her own photography business. She shot weddings and babies, but found she wanted something more. Now residing in Toronto, she decided to pursue a passion project of photographing ballet. The National Ballet of Canada soon got wind of her work, and now employs her as the company’s photographer. We talk with Karolina today about her upbringing surrounded by art, her time spent dancing, how she came to find photography, and what defines her aesthetic.
