Irek Kielczyck

Immigrated to South Africa in 1990, Irek Kielczyk got to know the photography by private studies. In Cape Town he worked as an assistant for Bruce Weber and in the middle of the 90's he returned to Poland, where from then on he took pictures for several fashion magazines. Irek try to mediate a pictorial appreciation disconnected from the object, due to an excessively long illumination and the camera’s shaking and moving during the exposure the objects and figures start to transform. It is about dematerialisation and abstraction of shapes and landscapes with help of the camera, which is not visible to the naked eye. Irek Kielczyk currently lives and works in Warsaw-Poland.
