Exhibiting in Poland for the first time at the Kasia Michalski Gallery, Jurek Wajdowicz presents "Solace / Wyciszenie" a collection of large scale, abstract photographs which bring to mind a vision of an urban environment seen from a distance; dazzling with light and color, vibrating in constant, yet imperceptible movement. These contemplative, minimalist images float somewhere on the edge of abstraction and reality inspiring an atmosphere of tranquility, inviting the viewer to meditate and question what they are looking at. Wajdowicz's fine art photographic book "Liminal Spaces_Fotografie 75" was published in Fall 2013 by Lars Müller Publishers.
