    Bogdan Dziworski - f/5.6

    Exhibition open: 08.09.2017 - 22.10.2017

    Bogdan Dziworski’s photography exhibition entitled "f /5.6" will be displayed at Leica 6x7 Gallery Warsaw. The retrospective will show an outstanding filmmaker in a role of photographer. Bogdan Dziworski is considered the master of street photography and he is often called “polish Cartier-Bresson”. Polish society of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s has become a main theme of Dziworski’s tender and subjective documentaries. To save it he used black and white analogue photography – during the show we will display a beautiful selection of gelatin silver prints.
