Biography

William Mokrynski (b.1969 Canada) is a London based visual artist who works with photography. His work has been exhibited and published internationally, and is included in a variety of collections. He studied photography alongside new media at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, and received an MFA in photography at the Edinburgh College of Art / University of Edinburgh.

Mokrynski is interested in photography’s tenuous connection with reality. With the photographic image rooted in the material world – often referred to as a mirror of reality, he explores the medium’s ability to disconnect, intervene, and suggest something different. Drawing upon orphaned material from the photographic past along with work from the present, Mokrynski forms matter of a parallel universe through photographic process.
