            Photographer of Traces, a series of manipulated images, Weronika Gesicka resides in Poland. Like many artist, Gesicka explores ideas revolving around memory. In a reoccurring manner, Gesicka looks at the process of how images of our past, over time, evolve in our minds, blurring and fading. In a broader sense, Gesicka discusses memory in a society that eventually becomes part of history and utilizes a documenting medium to enables those ideas. Usually, she works with past photographs from images banks allowing the 50s and 60s to live in this time period with a new perspective. Because of the original context, her work slightly touches on family dynamics and gender roles. By manipulating these photos, Gesicka transforms the context in which the images were originally read and further allows the viewer to imagine their own scenarios. For the most part the viewer can easily notice or at least assume where the manipulations take place. In some instances the images are a bit uncomfortable because the viewer concludes the original image in their minds.
