The photos by Andrzej J. Lech have been gathered under a collective title of “Fotogenia”. What does this term suggests about the works presented at the exhibition? For it has to be added that it is a rather broad concept and one not entirely unambiguous, as is often the case when interpreting works of art… It refers to that aspect of photographic representation (a photo-documentation) which at the same time contains within something more, expresses said advantage over simple depiction of reality, points to contents that may be dependent also on the person looking at the given photo. Therefore, fotogenia is what connects – so to speak – to the aura of artistry, that is the individual, subjective influence of a photographer’s intentions and emotions, which have been somewhat “projected” into a captured frame.
