Tomasz Gudzowaty

1971年生於華沙,是一位傑出的波蘭攝影師。他主要用黑白攝影為創作手段,關註那些散落四周又正在消逝,或行將為世人遺忘的事物。他聚焦於人類的情感、激情和選擇。他的目標是捕捉那些神奇的時刻,在那里邀請觀眾反思不斷變化的人類處境和他認為最重要的價值觀:發現一己之激情所在,並一心一意地追隨它。他通過他莊嚴、慎思、富有美感但簡潔的圖像來傳遞他要表達的信息。他用相機拍下現實,如他所發現的那樣。某種意義上,也可以說,他依據一己之感受建構了這一現實。

born 1971 in Warsaw, is one of the preeminent photographers of Poland today. He uses film-based black and white photography as his medium, placing a premium on what is disappearing and falling into oblivion, cast into the margins, outside the mainstream. He focuses on human emotions, passions, and choices. He aims in capturing the magic of the moments setting an invitation for viewer to reflect on the changing human condition, and on the values he deems all-important: finding one’s passion and pursuing it with whole heart and single mind. He conveys his message through sublime, carefully thought, and highly aesthetic yet simple pictures. He photographs reality as he finds it, and, in a sense, he constructs this reality himself according to his feelings.
