Krakow Sunset

A last March weekend Sunset


Hello!

As some of you know, the first quarter of 2019 has not been good for me… The main reason for this was the loss of my camera due to the robbery that took place at the end of February. But now days, I am back to full swing and my routine I would say… however, street and documentary does not give us the routine, does it?

And here they are… First captures of sunset during the last Saturday of March 2019. As you can see, these photographs are not crispy sharp, a bit grainy with some nice touch on Lightroom and finalized on Photoshop. But this is how I imagined them, in a different way than others present their work.

Hope you like them that much as I enjoyed photographing them for you and myself.

Enjoy!

Humans of Krakow

#HumansofKrakow

To document a city, it's people, their histories

It has been a while since I was here...

Hope you have been well and all goes fine for you and have a great holidays plans...

Need to say so much has happened since my last post here and I am not talking here about the exhibition (by the way, thank you very much to all of you who came to the Opening Evening) but above all about the change that I can feel that comes to my photography; my perception of Street Photography, next steps, directions... 

A new Series of HumansofKrakow

As you may know, I have attended portfolio review; a great event that was organized as one of many events linked to Krakow Photo Festival. I opened my heart, my photography to five unknown people who turned out to be great source of inspiration. Their words, advise made me think about what I should do... And the outcome is that I am planning to create as much as possible (if time allows) series of photographs presenting #HumansofKrakow. It is not a new concept as it has been there for a while but it seems still uncovered here in Krakow. Maybe you will ask yourself why does he want to pursue this idea? Maybe because to create stories about people around us. People whom we do not know but we live in the same city. And I am really under impression how vibrant Krakow is, tourists, students, the citizens... 

Just think what American society would be if the images taken by Vivian Maier were never found?  Just look at her photographs - masterpieces she created about the simple life of people of Chicago, New York... 

Thus, if you think this is a good idea, get in touch please. Maybe together we can create something extraordinary. 

All the best and have a great holidays by the way!

Winter in Krakow

Black and White Photography during a snowy day

Winter is here in Krakow

And the January time has created a great photo opportunity for all of us who make black and white photo stories. To be frank, it was a fairly nice photo walk, despite the snow and wind. Maybe because, I have not done any photo walks in a while. 

People walking, dogs barking and running, birds seeking any kind of food and peaceful calm despite the fact I was in the heart of Krakow. That makes me relaxed the best; camera on my neck, tranquility around and above scenery that cannot look better than in black and white.

See the photographs yourself! 

World Photo Day at AccorHotels in Krakow, Poland

When your work dovetails with the passion...or you share your passion with work...

As only I found about the role I hold at the moment, I instantly knew I would be able to use my photography skills, passion in my work but need to admit was not aware there will be so much involvement of it. And you know what... I really do not mind, even more, I love it. And I am not saying photo sessions for hotels which I cannot deliver but the chance to help the hotels with my own photography which I took over last years. And that moment has come quicker than I expected.

All mid-scale Accor hotels in Krakow celebrate the World Photo Day this week. Two Novotels and Mercure have special photography displays which are open to the public. Novotel Krakow City West has offered me kindly space in their lobby where some print outs are displayed. Mercure Krakow Old Town boasts a digital photo display on massive TV screens and finally, the lobby of Novotel Krakow Centrum is full of large boards with photographs taken by the artists gathered around IngersKrakow. So if you are around Krakow these coming days, pop into AccorHotels and see what is on. Do not hesitate to share your feedback. And do you plan to celebrate World Photo Day? If so, how? Let me know.

Till the next time,

Wojtek
