At the exhibition the artist invites you to contemplate images stretched between apparent subtlety and raw expression. The project was implemented in a specially arranged underwater studio. The exhibition consists of nearly 30 photographs. Szymon Kobusiński has the strongest focus on the very process taking place on the set, trying to get a unique effect at the stage of the photo session. “Intimacy” had its premiere in November in Studio Bank as part of the Pop Up Gallery.
