Years 1947-50

Dlubak took his first photographs during a stay at a sanatorium in Otwock. Taken with a borrowed 35mm camera, the works explored the various possibilities of the equipment. The early photographs betray a range of avant-garde inspirations, characteristic of pre-war practice, primarily from the constructivist and surrealist traditions, but also New Objectivity. These experiments, developing towards sensual and murky abstraction, were interrupted by the imposition of a defined model of socialist realism.
