Jacek PorembaBorn 1966, Łódź. Photographer, portraitist. He lives in Warsaw. He came to the world of photography by chance but not by accident. His father introduced him to photography but he fell in love with it because of his own determination, experiments and search for the outlet of his energy. Poremba specializes in fashion, portraits and advertising photography. In 2001 during his journey to Sudan Poremba started his author’s projects: “portrait” and “landscape”. Although both projects require a lot of traveling, Poremba successfully managed to reconcile artistic photography with commercial work.
He has worked for the most important Polish magazines as "Twój Styl", "Playboy", "Pani", "Gala". He is also an author of many CD and LP covers: Kayah/Bregovic, Nosowska, Lipnicka/Porter, Bartosiewicz, Kowalska, Jopek, Kora, Maria Peszek.
His most important clients are: PKO TFI, WBK Bank Zachodni, Bank Millennium, Casio, Atlantic, Smirnoff, Chopin Vodka, Absolut, KinderDelice, Polkomtel, Dove, L'oreal.
His works were shown both in Poland and abroad, e.g. Teatr Pstrąg (Łódź 1990), Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej (Zamek Ujazdowski, Warsaw 1990), Photokina (Cologne, Germany 1998), Galeria 65 (Warsaw 2006).
Exhibition open: 09.06.2013 - 16.06.2013
