We are constantly hearing about the outstanding achievements of previous ShowOFF Section winners. We are extremely proud of the significant success of the project, which has its premiere on the 2016 edition of Krakow Photomonth: “Slash & Burn” by Terje Abusdal.
Traces – the project by Weronika Gęsicka, has been presented for the first time during the exhibition of the ShowOFF Section 2016. It is already well-known worldwide, it has been published by leading portals and magazines, including The Guardian, and exhibited at the biggest international photography festivals, such as Paris Photo. What is more, awaited Traces photobook has just been published!
There is no doubt: winners of the previous ShowOFF Section editions are going places in the photo-world! Since the 2016 edition, Constantin Schlachter is proving his #ShowOFFpower and currently, he is promoting his first photobook: La trajectoire du Gyrovague.
#showOFFpower mode ON! We’ve kicked off the submission process for the 10th edition of ShowOFF Section!
May 2018 will mark a decade since the inaugural ShowOFF exhibitions originally opened. Our tenth anniversary programme offers yet another exciting opportunity to highlight photographers for whom an exhibition within ShowOFF Section has the potential to similarly kickstart a vibrant career!
Do you remember UFO Visual Lab project by Fresh From Poland, which was displayed during the 15th edition of Krakow Photomonth? Good news – it wasn’t the last chance to see the exhibition! From 22 October, the project will be shown at the Noorderlicht Photofestival 2017 in Groningen. The project is curated by Grażyna Siedlecka. Congratulations!
On behalf of the Wschodnia Gallery In Lodz we invite you to see the exhibition: Collection by Anna Zagrodzka, one of the ShowOFF Section 2015 winners. Following the website of the artist: Collection refers to the system of teaching art history based on using visual material on slides. This method, commonly used before the arrival of digital reproduction, is still applied in many lectures.
The vacation time for the Krakow Photomonth team has come to an end, however we haven’t been lazy this whole time! After closing the 15th edition of the festival we went to visit some other photography festivals!
Wojciech Plewiński is one of the most significant Polish photographers of the postwar period. A versatile photographer of eclectic range and omnivorous inquisitiveness, he has, over the course of a career spanning more than half a century, established himself as an accomplished portraitist and fashion photographer, as well as an auteur who produced a striking documentary record of the Polish theatre. Yet a significant segment of his work—his narrative photojournalism—has never been shown to a wider audience.
