My first solo exhibition, (Be)Longing, has opened at 7 PM, on Friday, 14 January 2011, at the Stained Glass Museum in Kraków. It has been a very emotional moment for me.
I have been interested in photography since I was a child. I became enchanted when I saw an image appear on a sheet of paper floating in a dish filled with developer. That was better than magic.
My day-to-day job requires me to travel a lot. I beat my own record by visiting forty-six countries in 2010. I wish I could travel everywhere with my large format camera.
The (Be)Longing series comprises fragments of a particular landscape. It is difficult for me to express in words what I see in them but I am certain that there are several interconnected layers to which I react emotionally.
Large format photography requires exceptional technical preparation and the process of making prints takes a lot of work.
To fully appreciate web reproductions of my silver-gelatin prints you must rely on your monitor being adequately calibrated. To help you, I have created a simple grayscale tool. It is very easy to use and you can do the adjustments in less than a minute.
