Vanishing Portraits- A Documentation,
Karol Jóźwiak

This exhibition will be the first presentation of Karol Jóźwiak’s photographic project of commemoration of the death in Bulgaria with photography playing a crucial role in this process. An in-depth research and documentation of this phenomenon led to the uncovering of some intriguing anthropological and cultural traces. Furthermore it became a starting point for the reflection on the very medium of photography seen as a carrier of timeless archetypes and symbols. The exhibition is meant to be a kind of journey report in which photos, some found scraps of newspapers and diary entries are put together to tell a story.
