Summary/Abstract: The 3rd Biennial of Photography was organised in Poznan (April-May 2003). It was a continuation of workshops and meetings organised by Stefan Wojnecki in the 1980’s. Similar exhibitions are organised by Jerzy Olek, Krzysztof Cichosz (Łódź), Marek Grygiel (Warsaw), and Zbigniew Turlej (Kraków). In Kraków, there are other festivals of photography. Marianna Michałowska was a curator of the show in Poznan. She concentrated on “unusual” aspects of photography. She considers photography as social phenomenon. She believes that, in the artistic process, common experiences turn artefacts. Contemporary art accompanies social events, but it rarely tries to change it. Photographers, who more closely watch every-day events, are able to add their personal commentary to the reality. Their work was analysed in the text by Łukasz Abramowicz which was published in the biennial catalogue.
