Curator: Wojciech Nowicki
Wojciech Plewiński (born Warsaw, 1928) is one of the most significant Polish photographers of the postwar period. A versatile lensman of eclectic range and omnivorous inquisitiveness, he has, over the course of a career spanning more than half a century, established himself as an accomplished portraitist (of writers such as Szymborska, Mrożek, and Lem; of film directors including Wajda, Polanski, and Has); as a fashion photographer, in particular of young female models for the cover of ‘Przekrój’ magazine; as an auteur who produced a striking visual record of the postwar Polish theatre; and as a dedicated documentarian, with a knack for combining the disciplines of photojournalism and fine-art photography even when on deadline, whose documentary instincts link him as spiritual kin to the French humanists Henri Cartier-Bresson, Édouard Boubat, and Robert Doisneau.
