Celluloid Lives on

An exhibition of works by Polish photographer Marek Po¼niak, entitled Porysowane (Scratched), will open at Wroc³aw's Za Szaf± gallery Nov. 15, and will be on display through Dec. 14.

Born in 1960, Po¼niak started taking pictures in 1968. He studied at a photography college in Warsaw and moved to live in Berlin over a decade ago.

Po¼niak has had more than a dozen one-man exhibitions and taken part in many collective projects. Apart from photography, his work also encompasses computer graphics and typography.

He has written several publications on photography, and his photos illustrate poetry books by several poets.

Po¼niak is one of few photographers in Poland who remain faithful to celluloid film. Photos that employ traditional techniques are the trademark of his work. Po¼niak often takes pictures using cameras that others would have discarded or donated to photography museums long ago. The oldest camera in the artist's collection is more than 110 years old. Photos by Po¼niak are part of many private collections in Europe and Australia.
