Trapéz Gallery presents Jerzy Lewczyński. ‘A camera in a photographer’s hand is a kind of eternal pen, writing down his inner tensions, among other things, for the future.’ - described the Polish photographer Jerzy Lewczyński his relation to the camera in an interview. Lewczyński emerged on the Polish art scene as a participant of the exhibition "Closed Show" in Gliwice in 1959. This show featured works of the informal artistic group, consisting of Lewczyński and two Polish painters, Bronisław Schlabs and Zdzisław Beksiński. They were later described as "antiphotographs", in reference to the French postwar, experimental antinovels.
