After many years, the first in Poland exhibition of pictures of Wojtek Łukowski (FotoBodega’s owner) presenting dozens of diversified pictures through which the author takes the viewer on a tour beginning with the overall plan, the first view of the world, perception of fragments, elements of reality to processing realistic images into visions, abstractions, fantasies and understatement.
The works are presented in the stylish foyer of the National Theatre in Warsaw.
The vernissage of the exhibition: 27 May 2013 (Monday) at 19.00 in the Galeria Przy Teatrze, Plac Teatralny 3, Warsaw.

In 1954, at the age of 24, Gianni Berengo gardin took his first photograph. From that point, the camera would be his constant companion. After becoming a photojournalist, his simple yet raw language started to develop. For Berengo, it was not about art or about the act
of photography, but the process of documentation. however, his images resonated with people. they did more than just provide information — instead he captured surreal moments which spoke to the subtle oddities of the human condition.
Berengo’s approach to photography relies heavily on the fact that he uses only black and white film, no digital cameras or computerized post-production. he leaves all his images raw, exactly as he shot them. he believes that making an image more attractive in post-production is artificial, clashing with his engrained photojournalistic instincts. the power of photography lies in its close connection to reality. Modifications can make it more beautiful or compelling, but it will no longer be the truth. Berengo’s work, stretching from architecture and landscape to fashion, has appeared in domus, le figaro and time magazine. He has compiled 210 photographic books as well as shot for companies such as procter & gamble and olivetti. His photographs are at the museum of modern art new york and the national library in paris. currently, a twelve piece collection he produced for fantini is being shown at the belvedere gallery.
I was there! Amazing exhibition! My photos of photos special for FotoBodega’s friends 🙂

In 1947, with Robert Capa, George Rodger, David ‚Chim’ Seymour and William Vandivert, he founded Magnum Photos. After three years spent travelling in the East, in 1952 he returned to Europe, where he published his first book, Images à la Sauvette (published in English as The Decisive Moment).
“I walk with seasons, that’s basically what I do and I document it, once it went through the layers of my mind, once, twice, forever… I use it all, digital, analogue, paint on negatives, layers of colors, through the viewfinder, whatever, whenever…I enjoy the road to the final image, if there is ever a final image, rather than the endresult itself. And I ramble…a lot…silently behind my desk.”
Photographer Jetty Kolobaric lives in The Netherlands, where winters are cold, gray and wet, but not without beauty. By photographing Dutch scenery in black & white, or with sparse color, Jetty captures the wintery bleakness and beauty at once. She uses a variety of techniques to make each picture interesting, presenting the same scene in several lights. “I use it all,” she says. “Digital, analogue, paint on negatives, layers of colors, through the viewfinder, whatever, whenever…”
