Jason Evans – Krakow Photomonth 2012

“I didn’t used to do photo-festivals but one that changed that for me it’s the Krakow Photomonth. The city itself is a total joy. Beautiful, easy to get around, leafy, mellow and awesome Polish food. Did I mention the vodka?

This was their 10th anniversary and they gave me the opportunity to make something I’ve wanted to do for ages. (They take risks here.) See the visitor response to my show at www.photographyforsculpture.com

The highlight for me was Charlotte Cotton’s super pro-active Photography in Everyday Life. The main contemporary art space in the city became a living culture work-shop think-tank research-hub point-of-departure. FRESH !!!

The range of work on show across the festival was quite amazing this year. Rodchenko to Sally Mann to Magritte to Viviane Sassen to Leiko Shiga to Jerzy Lywcynski to Sergey Bratkov. There is also an opportunity to catch up with young Polish photography in theshow off section, often housed in tucked away venues this is a brilliant excuse to explore the city. And walk off the pierogi.”
