It was born from my passion of traveling to far-flung countries and photography. Book contains 215 pages with black & white plus colour photographs from my adventures to South East Asia, South America.
Desiderata represents people, their minds and souls. "With all its shame, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world".
According to Max Ehrmann's poem "Desiderata" is a
declaration of what is essential to one's life and how to live peacefully.
"…Whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul"
Originally from Poland, Beata stays true to her Eastern European roots with her love of Russian perogies. She pursues her life's bliss in the outdoors, finding art, in all its forms, wherever she goes. A bohemian at heart, most of her life was spent studying, taking photographs, meeting people, spreading her love and also, in true free spirit fashion, spreading her thumb hitchhiking through many corners of the earth. She moved to Vancouver to taste the art life at Vancouver film school. Beata can often be seen expressing her creative passions with her hands on the streets of Vancouver with a camera, or in the art studio painting, making jewelry and building ceramics. There is a saying : "Life should not be measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away". Beata's photos represent her moments, hopefully, they will be yours as well.
