Jakub Karwowski

Jakub Karwowski was born in 1985 in Krakow, Poland. He studied Musicology in the Jagiellonian University and Photography in the Filmschool in Lodz. Using the tradition of family photography he concentrates his work on emotions and the observation of the personal reality. Since 2008 Jakub has been photographing his own familly, creating what he calls chapters of his “familly album”, which as separate and individual projects show his fascination of film, painting and music esthetic. Using visual elements of other disciplines he creates his own photographic narration. Jakub lives with his family in Krakow where he works in fields of photography, film, music and design. Today we take a look at his series titled Sentimental Fiction.

Sentimental Fiction

This is a familly album of a photographer.
A very traditional and popular subject, yet constructed in a more cunning way.
In following chapters it deals with different aspects of personal reality.
However it is not a documentary project, it documents the way this personal
reality is oriented and structured and how the photographer sees the intimate world around him.
The blend of reality with fiction, the cinematic tension and the emotional approach creates
the language for photographer to express the essence of his esthetic attitude.
It also makes the variation of the place where the spectator is being invited to see that
sentimental fiction.
