Poland in New York



Three Polish photographers will present their work at Photoville, the largest photo festival in North America, which will take place in Brooklyn Bridge Park, from 18 to 28 September. Adam Pańczuk will show his already renowned series of photographs entitled “Karczeby”, which won the Best Photography Book award at the 71st Pictures of the Year International photography competition. The word karczeby means “trees that are difficult to uproot”. The artist uses this word metaphorically in relation to some inhabitants of the Podlasie and Polesie regions, which lie in the north-east of Poland. In this series, Pańczuk presents imaginative and often surprising portraits of the people living in the regions. As a whole, his photo collection creates a story about people and their ties with their homeland. Kacper Kowalski will present his conceptual photographs from the “Waving” series, including his aerial photos of Polish beaches, which have already received recognition at the World Press Photo competition. Rafał Milach will show his photo diary from his trip around Iceland, while travelling along Iceland’s route A1. Reportedly, it is a trip that every Icelander undertakes at least once in his lifetime. The organisers of the Photoville festival are expecting about 80,000 visitors this year. The Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage has sponsored the participation of the three photographers in this event.
