The exhibition contains 37 black and white photographs, taken during three decades: from 1960’s till 1980’s. Beside well-known pictures, being an important part of the heritage of polish photography, there are also premieres, unpublished, never shown, discovered in the Artist’s archives.

Dziworski’s pictures tell the stories about relations between men and women, its nuances and subtleties.
First emotions and attentions cought with the sensitive eye of the photographer. The observations of the simple behaviour of the every-day people. The core of the masculinity and the feminity.
Bogdan Dziworski discovers the world of sensations and translates it to the simple language of reportage.
These simple frames are obligatory lesson of photography with a distinguished teacher.

Bogdan Dziworski: polish photographer, cinematographer, director and screenwriter, born on December 8, 1941 in Lodz. He studied Film Production and Camera at the Film Academy in Lodz. Dziworski is famous of his excellent short documentary films. Many of them have won awards at the most respected film festivals. He is one of the most charismatic and influential polish teachers of photography. He lectures at Silesian University in Katowice and at the Film School in Warsaw.

Dziworski’s black and white photographs, classical in form and content, belong to the canon of Polish post-war photography. Just like his great master – Henri Cartier-Bresson – Dziworski captures the scenes from the lifes of ordinary people: young and old, beautiful and ugly, happy and sad. Especially beautiful are his pictures of children. Although his first album “My View” was published in 1981 in Vienna – for a long time his pictures were hidden in a cupboard. Most of them were unleashed in 1990s on exhibitions in Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw and Berlin.
