Grupa OkołoFotograficzna (CircaPhotographic Group)
An informal group of acquaintances, formed in 2006 as a follow-up to the inspiring workshop by the photographer Juliusz Sokołowski. The Group members are students as well as graduates of the Faculty of Polish Studies and the Institute of Polish Culture of the University of Warsaw. Since the very beginning, the Group has focused on photography-related activities.
‘By what we do we try to challenge, though never negate, the popular stereotype of photography perceived only as an artistic statement. We use photography as a chance to meet people, talk to them and stimulate the local activity.’
