Dominika is the Exhibitions Intern for Spring 2018. Dominika was born in Poland and came to New York 4 years ago. She goes to International High School at Union Square, and she’s a junior. Dominika loves photography and she likes to take pictures such as landscapes and portraits. For example, in her exhibition after the JHP photography class, she showed pictures of trees and sun coming through the trees. Dominika loved this view because she liked the contrast that the sun gave to the trees and she thought that it looked beautiful.Dominika chose to work at JHP because she wants to learn more about photography and how to take professional pictures. She wants to learn how to organize and put on exhibitions, like she participated in after the JHP photography class. In the future, she wants to become a professional photographer and travel around the world to take pictures from other cultures and countries.
