“Structure and verse” – Structure

The second part of the exhibition incorporates structures, shapes and forms that have been noticed underfoot, overhead or on walls and which I can envisage as being an artistic transformation of reality into a work of art, both abstract and applied.

“Structure and verse” – Verse

I am presenting at the exhibition 42 photographs focusing around two topics. The first combines urban photography with the classics of world literature. In the presented works, I have tried to present the parts of the surrounding world, cities, urban elements and fragments of cherished books that I find fascinating and that have shaped my way of perceiving reality. The collage made up of these two worlds – photography and literature – is very closely interwoven, giving the recipients the chance to personally interpret the works. The quotes include fragments from the tales of Hans Christian Andersen in Catalan and Don Quixote in Spanish.

Sobre el autor

Sacando fotografía, intenta mostrar lo que sin tí nadie hubiera visto- Robert Bresson

Para Wojtek Łukowski la fotografia es su vida en paralelo. Profesionalmente se dedica al marketing, promoción y relaciones públicas; a la vez está creando, componiendo e investigando a través de la lente la realidad que le rodea. El elemento más importante en el proceso de la creación de una fotografía es para él el momento cuando  presiona el botón del obturador. El efecto es de menor importancia, más importante es poder captar esta única fracción de segundo. Está de acuerdo con la tesis de que las mejores fotografías nacen en el límite de los eventos.  Siempre, las fotos más interesantes no nacen en el mismo centro de los hechos, sino en su vecindad. Wojtek Łukowski se inspira en el ambiente de las ciudades y en la observación de la vida día a día. Sus visiones, las realiza tanto en el ámbito artístico, inmortalizando las imágenes de lugares, personas, acontecimientos bajo forma de composición fotográfica, como también y en el ámbito profesional, ofreciendo servicios comerciales para los clientes. Todos los sitios donde está presente como fotógrafo,  modelan su estilo de varias maneras, dependiendo de la ciudad, entorno y ambiente que le rodean. El Artista le dedica mucha importancia a la composición. También es  importante para él el juego de asociaciones y ambigűedades.

Otra pasión de Wojtek Łukowski son los libros; tanto éstos preciosos, perfectos en su forma, como y los gastados por el tiempo y olvidados por la gente. Es de donde nace el intento de unir en la exposición la imagen de nuestro entorno con fragmentos de libros del canon literario mundial. El Artista presenta también los fragmentos opuestos de la realidad, de los que no nos damos cuenta en nuestra vida diaria, y que pueden constituir una visión artística del mundo.

El Autor está realizando un proyecto a gran escala relacionado con la fotografía y titulado FotoBodega, que presenta las realizaciones de los fotógrafos de antes y de hoy, y que permite hacer el seguimiento de las novedades en este campo. Es autor de artículos sobre el marketing en la campo de fotografía y sobre el uso de la fotografía en marketing.

About author

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen. – Robert Bresson

 

Wojtek Łukowski treats photography as his parallel life. He is a professional marketing specialist dealing with promotion and public relations. At the same time, he creates, composes and studies the surrounding reality with the lens of his camera. For Wojtek Łukowski, the moment of pressing the shutter button is the most important part of creating a photograph. The result is less important; what matters most is capturing a unique fraction of a second. He agrees with the opinion that the best photographs are always taken on the edge of events. The most interesting photos are not those from the centre of events but those from the area surrounding them. He takes his inspiration from the urban atmosphere and observations of everyday life. He materializes his visions both in his artistic activities – by capturing places, people and events in a photographic composition – and in his professional work – by providing services to his customers. Every scene where he is placed influences his style in many ways – depending on the city, environment and local atmosphere. He puts much emphasis on the composition. He also likes playing with associations and understatements.

Books are another passion of Wojtek Łukowski’s. He loves both the beautifully edited volumes in perfect shape and those destructed by time and forgotten by people. This is why the exhibition as an attempt at combining scenes from our environment with passages from books from the world’s canon of literature. The artist also presents contrasting fragments of the reality. Although they could pass unnoticed in our daily lives, they also may be perceived as an artistic vision of the world.

Wojtek Łukowski heads a major photography project called FotoBodega. The project has been designed to display achievements of past and contemporary photographers and to help following recent developments in this area. He is also an author of articles on marketing in photography business and use of photography in marketing.
