Michał Giedrojć, (University of Arts in Poznan ) age group 1980, artist-photographer from Poland. In my works I give you the possibility to get to know my visions, my perception of world, the unreal world.y main subject has been a human being.. My photos represent my own, subjective look on specific person and on the world. There is no objectivity or attempt to present the real character of the people who stand in front of my camera. I’ll turn beauty into ugliness and ugliness into beauty. I’ll let the beauty to be beautiful and ugliness to stay ugly… Let the mood to decide the outcome.Most of my works are based on graphically manipulated images like in a Dream Serie. The world shown in my photographes is a subjective vision filtered by my sensitivity.its a series of portraits – photo montage where author puts people in unreal places. Situation presented in photographs have never happened and were only created by imagination and dreams. Person is isolated from reality with the imaginary world around him. The author freely transposes a person between two different worlds as if one tried to adapt to them. The Dreams series shows an individual tangled up in a conflict between what is realistic and what constitutes the author’s imagination on the subject of a particular scene. Persons who are photographed do not feel comfortable in the surrounding in which the author puts them, they make the impression of being alienated, asking the question about their situation in that place – whether it is their own dream or maybe the author’s?
