Krzysztof ZielińskiBORN 1974, Wąbrzeźno
What makes Krzysztof Zieliński’s photographs special is their painterly composition. The artist openly admits to being inspired by the American landscape photography of the 1970s – slightly surreal, fond of long shots. He applies this artistic strategy almost exclusively to one subject – the city he lives in. He has been photographing his home town of Wąbrzeźno as well as Berlin where he is currently based. His pictures are documents of the process of getting to know, experiencing, and then rediscovering specific places. Zieliński has a degree in photography from the FAMU in Prague (2001). In 1998, he did a semester course at the Fine Arts Department, Middlesex University, London.
