“Photographer is one the many…”, Warsaw 18 – 20 March 2016

Zaproszenie-

How innovation and freedom of expression of artistic thought is constrained by the demands of the commercial reality?

Can the artist integrate his individual strategies of intellectual and creative activities into the commercial work?

Is the image created at the request may be the same as the one that is the result of a strategy known in the art world?

Can we agree with the motto that “the photographer is one of the many co-authors of a larger team, cited alongside stylists, hair stylists, makeup artists, producers and models, or on the other hand – an independent, or fighting for the independence artist, consciously and consistently pursuing his own artistic expressions”?

The exhibition “The Photographer is one of the many… ” presents selected projects of four photographers – Paweł Fabjański, Karol Grygoruk, Jacek Kołodziejski and Łukasz Ziętek – members of Shootme, a commercial photography agency based in Warsaw, which combines art and commerce, individual style and requirements of the commercial customer.

Questions about the authenticity of artistic expression, originality of the creator and his concepts, and innovative medium of photography are embedded into the context of the modern world of advertising.

Doesn’t the artist deny himself acting in two worlds: commercial and art?

The exhibition will be accompanied with the release of the first Photobook, presenting the work of the four mentioned photographers.

With this exhibition and the Photobook, we would like to open and welcome a new stage and development of Shootme, emerging from the need to define and express a noticeable distinction between photography in art and advertising. The need to review and explore the separation of these two worlds, which often depend on each other, but at the same time exist as a separate, independent entities.

Shootme Art will be showcasing the individual and artistic projects of united under it’s wings photographers, starting with presented during the exhibition: Paweł Fabjański, Jacek Kołodziejski, Karol Grygoruk, Łukasz Ziętek.
