Ula Wiznerowicz (b. 1986) studied a BA Hons Degree in Photography at Middlesex University (2010). Her photographs have been exhibited widely with solo shows in Italy, England and Poland.

Her careful handling of subjects and their emotive stories has won her acclaim with most recently a Daylight Photo Award Jurors Pick, FotoVisura Grant, along with Ideas Tap Portfolio Award in 2012 and Channel 4/Saatchi Gallery Prize and D&AD Best New Blood Prizes in 2010.

A short documentary film about her was made and aired by Channel 4: http://jamesmh.net/697792/Ula-Wiznerowicz
