Meeting with Tadeusz Rolke

Tadeusz Rolke was born in 1929 in Warsaw. He is a Polish photographer whose work spans sixty years of Polish history. His early photographs show the ruined, and then rebuilt Warsaw in the new postwar, communist reality. Rolke has been a photojournalist, a fashion photographer, publishing in Polish magazines such as Stolica, Ty i Ja, or Przekrój, and German ones such as Stern, Art, or Der Spiegel. What matters to him in photography is the moment, the spontaneity of the gaze, and the documentation of reality, in which he has remained close to the notion of photography as exemplified by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Since the 1990s Rolke has been working on a series portraying Hasidic centres in Poland and Ukraine, published as Tu byliśmy. Ostatnie ślady zaginionej kultury [We were here. The last traces of a lost culture]. In 2012, Piotr Stasik made a documentary film about Tadeusz Rolke, Dziennik z podróży [Travelogue]. 2×15, a joint exhibition by Tadeusz Rolke and a young photographer, Michał Gonicki, is currently on display at the Two Moon Art House & Cafe in Brooklyn, New York. Now he is a lecturer in Department of Jurnalism of the University in Warsaw and in the Warsaw School of Photography and Graphic Design in Warsaw.

Basic techniques of preventive maintenance and digitization of photographs.

The topic of the workshop addresses the broader engagement with photo archive. The topics that will be covered during the workshop include: safe storage of photographic archives, forms of packing and unpacking of archival materials, types of packaging, wrappers, papers and other materials safe for archives. The process of digitization will constitute an important part of the workshop. It will be discussed how to select a scanner, how to scan, which file format to choose and how to store files.

Maciej Turczyniak – since 2009 he is the leader of the digitization department of the Archeology of Photography Foundation. His experience includes the scanning photographic materials on various substrates, as well as digital image processing, including advanced retouching and reconstruction scans. He has participated in numerous trainings in the field of digitization organized by such institutions as the NAC or NINA. He has also been involved in common projects with the Botanical Garden or the Bęc Zmiana Foundation.

The Objectives of the Foundation are to make the heritage left behind by photographers accessible, to issue licenses for use of the photographs of researched authors, to initiate art and research projects on the basis of these archives, to digitize photographs and make them accessible via databases on-line, to archive and preserve negatives, positives and documents, to develop archiving standards for photographs.
Currently the Foundation conducts research into the photographs and documents of Zbigniew Dlubak, one of key figures in the post-war history of photography in Poland. We are also setting out to explore the archives of Zofia Chometowska, Maria Chrzaszczowa, Janusz Bakowski, Wojciech Zamecznik and Tadeusz Suminski.

Tadeusz Rolke

“BARYTY”

The presented pictures provide an overview of the different years of the artist’s work, from the late 50s to the late 80s. All images represent the main points of interest of the photographer from these periods: the subjective approach to the subject and the ability to capture the mood of the moment almost like a reporter. What is essential in the pictures is the connection of people and places. One can find in them people less or more known, such as Piotr Skrzynecki, the most famous artist from Piwnica Pod Baranami in Cracow, but also people totally unknown, anonymous, captured while strolling down the streets of the city. Sometimes they are captured in situations undefined, quick and unposed, like for instance in the pictures portrayning the fashion photo session of Barbara Hoff in the Jerusalem Avenue in Warsaw in 1969. The validity of the context of the place makes you know the way that both Polish and foreign cities used to look like, which constitutes an important historical record. The linking of history and photography is worth reflection, as noted by Walter Benjamin: “the language of photography bonds the history, as the history makes sense of photography”. A quotation which makes perfect sense in regard to Rolke’s work.
