PHOTOGRAPHER IN FOCUS

Jakub Pasierkiewicz

I was born in 1980 in Poland and I graduated from the University of Silesia with a Masters in Fine Arts in 2005.

I use my camera to transfer and materialize the emotions which develop in my mind, the excitement caused by encountered reality. Sometimes the photos can abstract from reality, showing different aspects of colours and forms, whereas other times they can simply reflect certain situations taking place in front of my camera.

In my practice – be it photography, painting, or drawing – I try to recreate an idea that appears through thorough observation of the surrounding world. In other words, if we agree that vision is something abstract, something that is invisible and represents an individual need to self–express, then art becomes a tool enabling us to capture our ideas. Through art, I try to translate my experience into the image.
