Joanna Chwiłkowska (*1987, Poland) uses photography to centre bold, confident portraits of queer subjects. In Super Woman (2020), Chwiłkowska references the comic book iconography of cartoon heroines through a cyanotype print of a contemporary androgynous subject, weaving a queer subject into the traditionally heteronormative aesthetic of superheroes.
