A look inside the Leica Gallery Warsaw
Leica Gallery Warsaw was opened in January 2010 and soon became an important institution on the cultural map of Warsaw.
In addition to its exhibition space, the gallery is adjacent to our major Leica Store.
Leica's Warsaw gallery is oriented towards a wide variety of contemporary photography but focuses particularly on documentary image making.
Kowalski, the winner of World Press Photo, a photographer and a pilot, next to his well known and widely acclaimed works, will present new photographs, all in striking formats. The opening reception will be accompanied by Kowalski's photobook premiere.
With a degree in architecture, Kowalski focuses on aerial photography. He is nowadays one of world's best pilot photographers; taking his shots from a paraglider he captures previously unseen natural environments and normally inaccessible cityscapes. However, these are not merely pretty pictures.
"When flying, I cannot build a relationship with people the way it is in classical photography. I look at forests, fields and lakes. I look at natural catastrophes and I watch people taking rest - what I see is a portrait of civilization."
For his images he's received numerous awards, including the World Press Photo award in 2009 (Arts and Entertainment category), Grand Press Photo award, International Photography Award (IPA), Sony World Photography Award.
