About

Adam Dereszkiewicz  – photographer, graphic designer, cultural animator, educator. 

Multiple jury member for various photo contests, organiser of workshops, photowalks, exhibitions and cultural events organised within activities of Gdansk Photographic Society. It’s president 2014-2021. Initiator and promoter of Gdansk Photo Society’s Photo Gallery started in 2017, that presents artwork of Pomeranian photographers.

Big passionate about traditional photo techniques and mixing them with digital content. Aims to create simple, often black and white and high contrast images. Very keen to experiment and merge photography with graphical techniques. Quite often using multiple exposures or collages.

Took part in many group exhibitions as well as presented his own photo projects receiving very warm welcome and positive feedback. Feels best in area of fine art nude, portrait and abstract forms. Many of his works are photo series, very often realised over long period of time featuring many female participants as models.

About

Adam Dereszkiewicz – pasjonat i samouk fotograficzny, grafik. Organizator plenerów i warsztatów fotograficznych. Członek Gdańskiego Towarzystwa Fotograficznego i jego prezes w latach 2014-2021. 

W fotografii pasjonuje forma analogowa, tradycyjne techniki reprodukcji obrazu oraz mieszanie technik cyfrowych z tradycyjnymi. W kwestii stylistycznej stara się kreować obrazy proste, bardzo często czarno-białe i kontrastowe. Nie stroni od eksperymentów, jak na przykład zdjęcia obiektywem własnej konstrukcji, wiekowymi aparatami o wyjątkowo prostej budowie czy łączeniu technik fotograficznych z graficznymi. Realizuje się głównie w cyklach fotograficznych zestawiając proste obrazy w przekaz kompozycyjny a także, dość często, społeczny. Najlepiej czuje się w kategoriach portretu, abstrakcji fotograficznej oraz aktu.

Juror konkursów fotograficznych. Laureat paru konkursów. Uczestniczył w kilkudziesięciu wystawach zbiorowych oraz prezentował autorskie projekty fotograficzne, zbierając pochlebne recenzje swoich prac.
