born in 1975 in Krakow, began working with the medium of photography as a documentalist and received many Polish and international awards such as Pictures of the Year International (2004, 2006) or Grand Prix of the European Central Bank Annual Award in 2005; his works have twice won The Photo of the Year of Polish Press Photography (1999, 2002). In the course of his long work with involved photographic images he began to show growing interest in a discussion of its function, almost rejecting his own photographic practice. Assuming an analytic stance in relation to the medium of photography, he shifts from the author's position to an observation point, frequently transferring the responsibility for the creation to others. Since 1999 he has been working on a multi-dimensional project entitled "New Europe", which also reflects to a considerable extent the evolution of the artist's approach to photography. Initially Trzciński focuses on the processes of an individual's adaptation to the changing mechanisms of the system and the society. "New Europe" thus becomes a kind of global master-key when planning new horizon, it is a universal substitute term.
