WORKSHOP FEATURE: Adam Panczuk, Stories of the Landscape
ADAM PANCZUK: STORIES OF THE LANDSCAPE
NOVEMBER 12-16, 2014
We’re so immensely thrilled to be hosting a workshop with Adam Panczuk, a fine art photographer based in Warsaw, Poland. Adam is a member of Sputnik Photo Collective and is represented by La Galerie Particulaire and Picture Tank in Paris, France. His first book, Karczeby, was self-published and has received a nomination from the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards and was awarded Best New Photobook in the 71st Annual Picture Awards. In this intensive 5-day workshop, Adam will guide students as they conceptualize, photograph and edit a fast-paced project in Warsaw. Students will participate in daily critiques and discussions, as Adam provides invaluable feedback from his career as a fine art photographer.
Adam’s personal work has been a great inspiration to us and we consider his book Karczeby to be a piece of art, in and of itself. His meditative and almost fantastical portraits of Polish farmers- people that tend the land and historically, after death, return their bodies to the soil- take us to a place of history, tradition and cultural heritage. His elegiac work serves almost as a monument to the people that lived their lives in deep connection to the Polish landscape; elegantly poetic and tenderly staged. We’re thrilled to bring Adam’s long-form process to our workshop format and know that the insightfulness of his work will encourage a new level of depth in the way we all engage with photography.
We are truly honored to have this young master of photography joining us and look forward to seeing you all in Warsaw, Poland!
