I will not hide that Crystal Palace Productions is a one-woman show, and that the only one behind it is me – Olga Żmijewska from Idzbark, cultural scientist, founder and chair of The Art of Freedom Foundation and photo artist.
I am a lover of rural areas – especially my native village of Idzbark in Masuria – and wildlife in general.
I’m also associated with the feminist movement, and work for the equality of women and men, and in particular, the empowerment of women in social, professional and political life.
The Crystal Palace Productions website focuses on the most-important activities that I’m currently professionally involved in, with photography being the major one. You can find out more about my photos in the ‘Photography’ tab at the top of the page. The tab contains a portfolio and store, where you can buy fine art photography prints in limited editions as well as postcards.
Crystal Palace Productions is also music, because I’m the manager of a music duo. For more on this topic, go to the ‘Music‘ tab.
But that’s not all!
By clicking on the ‘Z‘ icon on the left, you’ll find a slightly crazy, quite magical, but – I promise – completely real world that I’m creating in a Masurian village, and that I’m sharing on my personal blog called ‘Zdrowy Wieśniak meets Virginia Woolf’ [‘Healthy Villager meets Virginia Woolf’]. On the other hand, the icon depicting a kitten’s head will lead you to my Peace & Pussy site, where a culture-related, feminine space with ambitious content and an online store is being created.
I live in Idzbark in Masuria, but I often visit, am active and work in other places. If you have interesting ideas, want to cooperate with me, or would like to implement a fascinating project, please write or call. Let’s meet!
