The exhibition in Leica Gallery and Dedo Gallery in Cracow would be the premiere show in Poland of Zbierski's winning series Pass by Me at Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award 2012. Along with the much acclaimed series, the very current project from Zbierski Love has to be reinvented would be presented.
The majority of the series Pass by Me was shot on journeys through eastern Europe and India. Although the portfolio appears to have a random structure at first sight, an underlying order and relationship exists between the images. Together they build an entirety and relate a story of happiness, memories and encounters characterized by the photographer's own particular style.
The series Love has to be reinvented is dominated by emotions and harsh pictures. This time Zbierski is negotiating the deepest need of being alone while still being social animal and vice versa in a modern world. It is already distinguished in Piotr's style: rapprochement, straightaway vision, reaching for the peak of emotionality, leaving technical questions out of the interest, giving the pure meaning at the first glance.
Piotr Zbierski: "I chose photography because it lets me get very close to people. It is the only medium with a directness that lets me show the existence of the imagination in the real world."
