Jakub Karwowski


This is a story. Based on situations that really happened. The main character is my son Fryderyk. This story is not extraordinary, but there is a secret in it. After his birth he underwent a difficult cardiac surgery which marked him with a scar on his chest. This scar is not the only scratch throughout the story, although it is the one that stands out.

Jakub Karwowski in his photography mainly focuses on the surroundings closest to him and the emotions and observations around that space. He transforms traditional family, photography and turns it in to a contemporary story revolving around one person’s intimate world. Since 2008 he has been photographing his family and creating the next chapters of his own “family album”.
