Since his photography studies at the National Film School in Lodz ten years ago, the works by Piotr Zbierski, born in 1987 in Poland, have been exhibited all throughout Europe.

In 2012, he was the laureate of the prestigious Leica Oscar Barnack Award in the “Newcomers” category and his work is shown in the frame of the international photography festival Les Rencontres d’Arles. His works can equally be found in institutional collections, including the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts.

For Piotr Zbierski, photography is a language, his way to communicate and interact with people whom he knows nothing about. “White Elephants” was a project five years in the making (2008-2012), during which he photographed the people he met during his travels, with a uniquely impressionistic approach: forms and people are blurred, the aim being to illustrate the sensation, the feeling felt in the moment.
