Portraits photographed by Silvia Pogoda, Bartek Wieczorek and the duos: Dyba and Adam Lach, Marta Zgierska and Mateusz Sarełło will be exhibited at Galeria Promocyjna, Warsaw, from 16 June 2021. The eminent photographers spent several months in 2020 shooting portraits in the framework of the “Personal Portrait or a Close Encounter with z… vol. 3” project. Commenced several years ago, the project borders on the art of photography and theatre, builds of the concept of monodrama as an intimate encounter between the artist and the audience and a classic form of creating a photographic portrait that results from an encounter between the photographer with the subject. Each and every time, it is a close relationship designed to capture the image of another person.
The project was part of the established and acclaimed We Are All Photographers series. The exhibition will also present a fly-on-the-wall video directed by Piotr Małecki that follows the sessions and the subjects involved the project. The exhibition will be open in Galeria Promocyjna till 21 August 2021.
