About Exhibition

The exhibition theme was "Quote Unquote". The idea of this theme was to interpret a famous quotes in an illustrative manner. Profound quotes can often provoke deep reactions, but lets not forget "a picture speaks a thousand words". We are hoping that interpreting the quotes as images & music, we will be able to convey the initial meanings of these quotes but with other nuances that you may not have been aware of.

Silhouettes Of Life

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." William Shakespeare


Case Study

Photo approach

faces struggle

We had two quick photo sessions for this concept. First didn't work out quite well, as the concept was still in a developement stage. It kinda changed few times, so I didn't use any of the photos we shot that day, but I still would to thank Patryk Piechocki for shooting this.

Second approach was the right one. It was pretty rushy, without enough equipment and time but the face shapes were caught pretty well to integrate them with the illustration. Also thanks to Anna Kwa?niewska and Tomasz Pijecki for participating in this.
