 For the first time since seventy years an individual exhibition of works by Zofia Chometowska (1902-1991) – one of most eminent and prolific women photographers of the interwar period and a pioneer of Polish photojournalism – opens in Warsaw featuring mostly her unknown work. Discovered in the artist’s archive (which was transported from Argentina owing to the FotoRejestr project, with the support of the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage), the works reveal a broad range of techniques characteristic of 35mm Leica camera.

Zbigniew Dlubak - "Peripheral Landscape" in Asymetria Gallery

Research in the archive of Zbigniew Dlubak has shed light on a fragment of the least known period in the artist’s practice. In the 1950s, having withdrawn himself from artistic and public life, the artist abandoned avant-garde experiments in order to turn towards documentary photography. From 1950 to 1962, Dlubak photographed desolate cityscapes and scenes from small town life, turning their ugliness and gloomy atmosphere into an artistic value.
