Penny Klepuszewska


Winning the Sproxton Award was a huge honour for Penny, giving her confidence in her own creative instincts and financially enabling her to develop the project further. ‘Living Arrangements’ considers life in old age and focusses on how the home, often regarded as a place of shelter, can become an island of isolation for some in later life. The work has since been included in many prestigious exhibitions including ‘Bloomberg New Contemporaries’, ‘ARTfutures 2008’ at the Bloomberg Space, ‘Future Map 07’ at the UAL Arts Gallery, ‘How We Are: Photographing Britain’ at Tate Britain, ‘Shenzhen Biennale – China’ and ‘Zoo Art Fair’ at the Royal Academy of Arts.

She has won a number of awards, including First Prize in the Pilsner Urquell ‘UK Photographer of the Year: Deeper Perspective’ International Photography Awards, First Prize in the British Journal of Photography/Nikon Endframe Award, First Prize in the Next Level/Vorsprung Durch Technik Contemporary Photography Awards, as well as receiving a photography bursary from the National Media Museum, a grant from the Arts Council England and a nomination for the 2009 Northern Art Prize.

She is currently working on a new project that examines Britain’s binge-drinking culture.
