Łukasz Bąk, Cold War – Photography

Amazing exhibition of shots made on the set of the “Cold War” movie directed by Paweł Pawlikowski. The film received three 2019 Oscar nominations for Best Direction, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Cinematography.

Photographs made by Łukasz Bąk embody a fresh and original depiction of what was happening “in between”. The images represent an impression about the Cold War’s characters becoming at the same time an extraordinary opportunity to enter this fascinating world. The exhibition gives a unique chance to see dozens of black and white photographs. Showing a bit more than only a simple documentation of a movie set the shots also allow us to immerse in the atmosphere of Pawlikowski’s story.
One of the most important subjects of Bąk’s photography is light. Sometimes strong, contrasting, expressive, backlight, stage, sometimes gentle and soft – just like the relationship between the protagonists of this story.

The exhibition consists of a wide selection of photographs made on the film set, showing both the world presented in the film and situations from the backstage.

Łukasz Bąk is a photographer and stills photographer. He took pictures on the sets of: Baby Bump and The Erlprince by Kuba Czekaj, Pardon by Jan Jakub Kolski, Werewolf by Adrian Panek, Ikar. The legend of Mietek Kosz by Maciej Pieprzyca and recently Cold War by Paweł Pawlikowski.
