Bright Moments

Share:

From 22 September to 21 December 2018, Berlin’s Hilaneh von Kories Gallery presents a showcase of images by Polish film-maker and photographer Bogdan Dziworski. While Dziworski has achieved considerable acclaim within his home country, his work is still something of a discovery for German audiences. Since the 1960s, the Leica photographer (born 1941) has created a unique photographic oeuvre that has earned him the cognomen of ‘Poland’s Cartier-Bresson’.

The photographs on display are independent works, many of which have never been exhibited before. Shot in high-contrast black and white, Dziworski’s analogue images give insight into everyday life in Polish cities during the second half of the twentieth century. “The pictures I took during those years were never staged,” the photographer explains. “They are the result of walking, day in day out, sometimes for eight hours at a time. You have to wait for the precise moment in which a scene arises from reality. And you have to be lucky — which I tended to be.”

The opening takes place today at 7pm.
