A drama feature film of polish production
Curator: Joanna Kinowska
Assistant: Dominika Kucner
The exhibition “A Drama Feature Film of Polish Production” is an attempt to confront a huge collection of photographs. These tell a personal story of the author and his habitat, his favourite movies, music and sports; but there is nochronological order here. Still, despite appearing loose and open to the viewer’s imagination, the narrative is precise, the order of the images dictated by their message or mood, with the neighbouring photos sometimes explaining or counterpointing each other.
Dąbrowski’s camera is used to remember a moment, to tell a story, sometimes to reminisce, as in the reproductions. But it is not the camera that matters the most here – there is no posing, no excessive invention. Instead, there is everyday life and the person of the photographer, that is, the ‘lyrical subject’. A lot of emotions, of adolescence and being a lad, and also some romanticism and nostalgia – the things all of us remember, though not all of us have it in pictures.
Kuba Dąbrowski (born 1980) – is a photographer with a degree in Sociology from the Jagiellonian University in Kraków and Photography from the Institute of Creative Photography of the Silesian University in Opava.
