Michał Łuczak works in Warsaw, lives in Katowice, and often draws on his Silesian roots. As a documentary photographer he concentrates on close-by, intimate and often seemingly trivial stories. Łuczak is a member of the Sputnik Photos collective. His photographs has been exhibited internationally, including Poland, UK, Spain, Iceland, Japan, Netherlands and USA.

In his cycle entitled ‘BrutalŁuczak documented Katowice Railway Station – once a prime example of brutalist architecture in Poland. The old Katowice Railway Station was located in the biggest post-industrial city in the coal-mining region of Upper Silesia (southern Poland). Constructed in 1972, the station stood as a symbol of modernity and power of the Polish People’s Republic. Between late 2010 and early 2011 the old Katowice Railway Station got demolished and later re-developed. Now a modern glass-and-steel station combined with a shopping mall stands in its place. ‘Brutal’ has thus become a document of a place that no longer exists and of people who disappeared together with the historical building.


 Brutal is a great example of a micro-documentary choosing to tell ‘little’ stories instead of grand narratives.
