The conversation of Jacek Kolodziejski and Klara Czerniewska took place 13 April at the Leica Gallery in Warsaw, as a part of a series of meetings related to the publication of the collective photobook “Photographer is one of many”, presenting the projects of four photographers – Pawel Fabjanski, Karol Grygoruk, Jacek Kołodziejski and Lukasz Zięta, in the context of their activities on the border of commerce and art. Individual strategies used in both personal and commercial projects are a pretext for asking the questions: 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?
