Janek Zamoyski (b.1978)
Artist, originator, co-founder and curator of Czułość gallery. Czułość as a project, can be treated as a part of Janek’s output.
Janek Zamoyski uses photography as a tool for creating images – while exploring the possibilities of the photographic medium he often chooses simple motifs which are also a reflection of the intimate sensibility of the artist. His photographs becomes art objects, in its aesthetics and form closer rather to painting or drawing, sometimes abstract, than classic photography based on a narrative description of reality.
