Cezariusz - (e)motions

Cezariusz - from series "(e)motions" ,

PHOTOGRAPHING is not only incidental framing of reality. It is also an attempt to deliver mood or emotion. This is the case of colour photographs of Cezariusz, who while trying to record a landscape makes an attempt to confront his own feelings toward landscape that is static by nature. Employing only movement of traditional film camera and not using any artificial or electronic transformations he endowes static fragments of landscape with dynamisms.

Trees, who are most often subjects of these photographs, look like objects moving in space, everything on these pictures becomes fluid as during projection of a movie. These atmospheric photographs make us rather think about classic painting techniques and appeal – as justly the title of the series suggests – to emotions of the one who made them and these persons who look at them.

It happens so often that the very essence of a photograph is in the photograph itself and not in what is being photographed. It seems like the works of Cezariusz are trying to bring us nearer to this risky statement.
