PIOTR ZBIERSKI2016.12.15 - 2017.01.29
We are proud to present the latest project of Piotr Zbierski: „Push the Sky Away”. The opening of the exhibition will take place at Leica 6×7 Gallery Warsaw, December 15. It will also be the launch of the Polish edition of the book under the same title. „Push the Sky Away” combines three separate projects. It is a photographic journey to the sources of nature, traditions, symbols and cultural codes.
ILONA SZWARC2016.10.29 - 2016.12.11
First, she orgazined a casting call for her doppelgängers. That was the initial step towards creating the artist’s newest photographic series titled I am a Woman and I Feast on Memory. At the core of the work there is Ilona Szwarc herself: as an immigrant, as a woman, as an artist. Each part of the triptych, consisting of sequential portraits, reminisces stage makeup instructional photographs.
WACŁAW WANTUCH2016.09.15 - 2016.10.23
Waclaw Wantuch is one of the most recognisable Polish female nude photographers, known primarily for its exploration of geometric and abstract forms of feminine shapes, which he emphasized with studio lights and high contrast. In the latest set of works presented at the exhibition we can see a distinct change in the artist’s vision of the world. Wantuch directs his attention to what is hidden in the shadows, out of a streak of light. By inviting daylight to his studio he accepts unpredictability of the every morning and the fact that sun can not be guided as studio lighting or screens.
BRUCE GILDEN2016.06.23 - 2016.08.28
Leica 6×7 Gallery Warszawa presents “American Made”, an exhibition of pictures by the legendary American photographer, Bruce Gilden. On display will be 18, large-format, spectacular colour photographs that Gilden took during his forty-day trip throughout the United States. These are the portraits of the American people who have been unable to live the American Dream.
SANDRO MILLER2016.04.22 - 2016.06.12
Celebrated Chicago photographer Sadnro Miller, and world-renowned actor John Malkovich, collaborate on a new photographic series now in Leica 6×7 Gallery Warszawa. We are pleased to present the debut of Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters, a new photographic collaboration between Chicago photographer Sandro Miller and actor John Malkovich.
PAWEL BOGUMIL2016.02.25 - 2016.04.03
Leica 6×7 Gallery Warsaw presents Pawel Bogumil’s exhibition with the tricky title ‘inHUMAN’. This word play perfectly illustrates the extreme feelings we experience looking at 40 black and white photographs of monkeys portrayed by the artist through the bars and glass screens of European zoos.
TOMASZ WYSOCKI2015.12.05 - 2016.02.14
The Tomasz Wysocki exhibition at the Leica Gallery Warszawa is the first comprehensive presentation of the work of this artist on the threshold of his career. This is also the first time the gallery has ever staged a debut exhibition.
The exhibition comprises three separate projects carried out by Wysocki in 2013—2015, during the course of his studies at the Łódź Film School. The exhibition is accompanied by a photobook — the artist’s first publication.
JUSTYNA MIELNIKIEWICZ2015.10.24 - 2015.11.29
Justyna Mielnikiewicz for over ten years has photographed Caucasus, trying to understand the complex situation in the region, mentality of its inhabitants and finally ways of the war and its longterm side effects on the day-to-day life. The result of this quest is “Woman with a Monkey”, a photobook which leads us in a way a good travelguide does, via Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and their autonomous republics: Georgia’s Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and Azerbaijan’s Upper Karabakh. These names are quite exotic to most of us. If we think about them at all, it’s mainly in the context of blood and thunder, ceaseless pursuits of independence and problematic post-soviet nostalgia.
5. LEICA STREET PHOTO2015.09.04 - 2015.10.18
The 5th edition of the Leica Street Photo contest organized by Leica Camera Poland has already ended. Leica Street Photo is a prestigious competition, which focuses on street photography. Elliott Erwitt said „a good image tells the story in one frame”. Among the submitted applications the jury will select the best twenty photographs. They will be presented at the post-competition exhibition at the Leica Gallery Warsaw – a unique event which presents a variety of street photography to the general public. The winners, apart from participation in the exhibition at the Leica Gallery, will receive a collector’s edition print of Polish street photography forerunner – Bogdan Dziworski.
JACEK FOTA2015.09.04 - 2015.10.18
Driving across America with your camera does not seem like an extraordinary idea for a series of photographs. There are people who would say that after Robert Frank there’s really no point in repeating this particular route. Nevertheless, for over 50 years many photographers embarked on the same journey, creating their own photographic documentation. Some of them approach the subject like photojournalists, others focus more on the surrounding landscapes. There are also photographers who concentrate on people only and those who simply follow in Frank’s steps. The list goes on.
