Galeria JEDNOSTKA, Warsaw, Poland
“When I look at my own Polish backyard, I see how radical it has become. I wish I wouldn’t have to refer to it, but I don’t see another option at the moment.“
A co-founder of the Sputnik Photos collective, Rafal Milach (b. 1978, Poland) captures the metamorphosis of post-soviet nations in the former Eastern Bloc. The artist skilfully straddles a range of aesthetic processes to highlight the subtle powers of state propaganda and impetus for political rebellion. These potent narratives have awarded him scholarships from the Polish Minister of Culture and National Heritage. Milach is a graduate Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland, and the ITF Institute of Creative Photography, Czech Republic. His award-winning photo books include The Winners, 7 Rooms, and The First March of Gentlemen.
