Description

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 ‘Brutal‘ Łuczak 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.
