Warsaw’s Veduta or a surreal cosmorama?
This composition consists of twenty-five photos joined into a 178-megapixel sphere and then projected from a three-dimensional sphere onto a flat lichen-shaped portrait frame using vedutismo algorithms. Veduta comes from Flanders, where artists such as Paul Bril painted Vedute as early as the 16th century. In the 17th century, Dutch painters created a specialty with a detailed and accurate portrayal of the city and landscapes that spoke to the local pride of the Dutch middle class.
Grzegorz Marcinek – artist photographer from Lublin. 1984.
Since I was a child, I had many different interests that can be broadly defined as related to the visual arts. Regardless of whether it was fire dancing, programming or playing instruments, it was always related to the graphics. I have always been interested in photography. My dad was involved in astrophotography back in the times of the People’s Republic of Poland, so I had access to the camera as a few years old in the early 90’s. The passion for photography was real, it came much later in 2005 with the purchase of the first digital SLR camera. Later I experimented with various fields of photography and the reporter turned out to be the closest to me. I wanted to be in interesting places where something is happening and to put it atypically. I used to enter foreign flats to photograph a fire through the window, or drive a 20-year-old roadster through minefields in the Sahara desert. It was always about an adventure, nice material and something amazing, such a spark, something that attracts attention. The first impression counts in photography. Either something catches you or it falls off. And already. I try to choose photos that have potential and bring it to the end. In 2018, I started shooting from the air. Here are the effects. Invite.
