Piotr Zbierski - Love has to be reinvented
Kehrer Berlin

Piotr Zbierski (1987) is the first photographer to be exhibited in the Kehrer Berlin »Prime 21« series, which will be presenting the work of young photographers in loose succession. Zbierski studied at the State University for Film, Television, and Theatre »Leon Schiller« in Lodz, Poland. Since then his works have appeared frequently in publications and exhibitions. In 2012 he won the »Leica Oscar Barnack Newcomer Award«, and in 2014 he received the European Cultural Foundation Grant and a Polish Ministry of Culture fellowship. Piotr Zbierski lives and works in Lodz and while travelling. Taking photographs for him is a kind of intimacy with forgetting and remembering.

Kehrer Berlin
July 20 to September, 2014
Exhibition Opening: July 19, 2014, from 6 to 9 pm.
