A catalogue for the exhibtion Andrzej Georgiew: Layers shown on Kraków Photomonth 2017.
Andrzej Georgiew was a photographer who never made projects or series, and yet who left behind a remarkably coherent oeuvre. Man is central to his interest; above all, the human face. He used to say: I keep getting the feeling that I’m always taking the same photograph. Georgiew returned to the same figures many times, stripping away more and more layers. In this way, he was trying to extract this “presentness” from time and to capture it. The fruit of these encounters is a series of apparently similar photographs. Georgiew was fascinated by tiny alterations in the frames’ precise compositions. He scrutinised these differences, trying to understand what makes a shot the one to choose.
