18th September is the start date of Photoville – the largest and the most popular festival of photography in the USA, www.photovillenyc.org. This year it shall include space dedicated to Polish photography. Adam Panczuk, Rafal Milach and Kacper Kowalski – artists who have won numerous awards all over the world – shall present their projects. The presentation itself shall be something special.
Rafal Milach will exhibit “In The Car With R” from Iceland – the result of his travel around this island, together with the writer Huldar Breiðfjörð. Adam Panczuk will show his “Karczebs” series, recognized and awarded all over the world (including Best Photography Book in the 71st PoYI) – a mystical story of the bond between man and the soil he works on. Kacper Kowalski will lift the veil of mystery and present his latest conceptual photography, a project which was born out of the series on photos about Polish beaches, which had received the World Press Photo award. This exhibition – through the very intriguing setup – will stand out even in such unconventional space as the grouping of containers.
All the authors will be present at the festival to tell the viewers about their work and the projects presented both in New York and elsewhere. The Polish program at Photoville includes also a slide show. A large screen will present works by other Polish photographers: Bownik, Jan Brykczynski of Sputnik Photos (Syngenta Photography Award), Piotr Zbierski (Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2012), Bart Pogoda, Kuba Dabrowski and Anna Orlowska.
