For the fourth time the best theatrical photographs have been chosen. In the fourth edition of the Theatrical Photography Competition held by The Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute, the jury has selected 16 finalists, among whom there is the photographer of Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic, Michał Heller! The works of the laureates, thus the best theatrical photographs of 2017/2018 season, will be exhibited in Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic from February 25 to March 29, 2019.
The opening will be accompanied by a meeting with Joanna Biernacka-Płoska from The Zbigniew Raszewski Institute—the competition coordinator. The event starts February 25 at 18:30 at the Small Stage. The exhibition of the winning works makes a great opportunity to talk about the backstage of the competition. Of course Michał Heller will be present. Since its formation he has been moderating the Opera Photography Gallery meetings with artists—this time for the first time he himself will play this role. Michał won first prize in the category of documentary photography for two sets of pictures on “Doctor Zhivago” (rehealsals and the premiere)—it was appreciated for “multisided reflection of the spirit and the dynamic of a theatrical performance.” See the victorious collection below.
