THE MAGICAL WORLD OF OLD AND NEW PHOTOGRAPHY

THE MAGICAL WORLD OF OLD AND NEW PHOTOGRAPHY
Małgorzata Musielak
An original project and an extradinary approach to photography: Małgorzata Musielak, a journey through the past and present of Oświęcim, using Xperia XZ.

This is my first exhibition and my first photographic project, and is the result of my passion and meticulousness. It is finally completed, and my first real, tangible success.

I discovered my interest in photography 4 years ago. I live in Oświęcim and  my city is very important for me. I photograph the local surroundings and its inhabitants using Sony Xperia smartphone. I am active on Instagram and Facebook where I share my pictures with friends.

For this exhibition I took on an extremely difficult task. I decided to juxtapose the world of old photography and that of the present, side by side, and in doing so, combines past and present. This requires patience, precision and focus. The project was inspired by the French photographer Julien Knez, who combined the world of Parisien modernity with memories of the town’s past, straight from yellowed photographs. Wanting to do the same with  my hometown, I  dedicated over 6 months to capturing past and present of Oświęcim.

This project is really important to me, especially because completing  it was not as easy as it might seem. Probably most people think that taking pictures with a smartphone is not that difficult, but I discovered, it actually is. The biggest problems were figuring out the best manual settings, avoiding blurriness and always finding the right lighting. I tried to pay attention to every detail, and so even the issue of printing these photos became a challenge. I needed a special kind of paper, and I had to search for a company that would print my pictures exactly as I had imagined them to be. This research took a lot of time and energy.

My work was displayed at the Tauron Life Festival in the City of Oświęcim in June 2018, and now can be seen online:

I am happy to share my pictures with you and hope that you enjoy this view of my hometown Oświęcim.
