PRIVATE 41 – From Poland
What is the state of Polish photography after 2000 then? This is a difficult question: today there seems to be a lack of meaningful currents and trends, and lots of authors borrow from other countries. However, the beginning of the 21st century became, especially for the young generation of photographers, a turning point when they looked to realism to portray Poland’s ever present dynamic changes, from the adoption of a new political system and a free market economy, to the participation in the UE and NATO.
