Pawel Fabjanski

The CR Photography Annual 2014: An Untitled series of images for an artbook on the Polish Film School by Pawel Fabjanski. As chosen by Sarah Douglas, Wallpaper*

This series of images stood out for me: I find them incredibly emotive, they drew me in. They feel like they have a personal relationship with the space, which I found compelling. The seemingly empty, uninhabited spaces, are actually alive with everyday objects such as pencils, chairs, paper. These objects end up taking on a life of their own.

The architectural and slightly unusual structures created in the photographs make them surreal, eerie and beautiful. There’s something very timeless about the images. The aesthetics, furniture and use of colour summon up the past, yet they are also utterly contemporary.
