Leica exhibition celebrates one of Poland’s finest photographers
In this episode of The Debrief, we take a look at the work of Bogdan Dziworski, a Polish photographer and cinematographer who has just turned 80.
Bogdan Dziworski was – and still is – a prolific street photographer. Often dubbed Poland’s answer to Vivian Maier, he has worked for a number of decades at home and abroad.
Starting out in post-war Poland, he went on to rub shoulders with personalities such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, who offered the Polish photographer a chance to join the world-renowned Magnum Agency. However, Dziworski turned down the offer, instead deciding to concentrate on his film work.
The Leica Gallery in Warsaw is now celebrating Dziworski’s 80th birthday with a display of the photographer’s work with a number of exhibitions both in Poland and beyond.
Host John Beauchamp is joined by curator Rafał Łochowski from the Warsaw Leica Gallery.
