Wojciech Plewiński

(born 1928 in Warsaw) lives and works in Cracow. After dropping out of sculpture studies at the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts, he studied architecture at the Cracow University of Technology, graduating in 1955. Rather than practicing his learned profession, he took up photography, becoming a member of the Union of Polish Art Photographers (ZPAF) as early as in 1957. Co-founder, with Zbigniew Łagocki and Wacław Nowak, of the informal collective Domino. Long-time collaborator of the Przekrój weekly (some 500 covers by 1990). A precursor of Polish fashion and advertising photography, he pioneered and for many years dominated the ‘cover girl’ genre. Author, from 1959, of photographic documentations of over 700 shows at various Cracow theatres (Rapsodyczny, Stary Teatr, Teatr im. J. Słowackiego), including legendary stagings by Konrad Swinarski, Józef Szajna, Andrzej Wajda, Jerzy Jarocki, Krystian Lupa.

He has shown his works in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Poland and abroad. His photographs are in the collections of major institutions such as the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź or the Muzeum Narodowe in Wrocław. Recipient of numerous awards, e.g. 1st Prize for Press Photography in Warsaw (1959); Gold Medal at the Theatre Photography Triennial in Novi Sad (1968, 1971); Medal for Old People in Madrid (1969); 1st Prize for Pope John Paul II in Poland photo essay (1979).
