Stanisław Boniecki (Bobrowiec)
The photography of Stanisław Boniecki, also known by the pseudonym of Bobrowiec, is part of a large collection of pictures presenting reality through the eyes of a young man. These photographs reveal a youthful lightness of being which is absurd, funny and contemplative. The photos immortalise people close to the artist, as well as journeys he made, and his daily life in Warsaw. A characteristic feature of Boniecki’s photography is his apparently random framing, which gives an impression of capturing fleeting moments in unposed, unplanned images, thus creating something genuine and exposed. Owing to this compositional fragmentation of reality, the images occasionally seem incomplete, as if snapped at the wrong moment, thus increasing the viewer’s feeling that they are privy to a clash between something familiar and something disturbingly alien.
Stanisław Boniecki studied art at Central Saint Martins in London. He is the author of a very popular blog. Published, among others, in magazines such as “Elle”, “Harper’s Bazaar”, “Malemen,” “Ginza Magazine”, “Oyster Magazine”, “Travel” and “Vice Magazine UK”.
