Pożar / Fire — Kuba Dąbrowski
It has been an epoch from the influential exhibition of Kuba Dąbrowski in Zachęta that grounded his position as one of the most important contemporary Polish photographers. "Pożar/Fire" is the new photobook of Kuba with his personal pictures that cover both the mood of "democratic fire" in Europe last years and the undefined and photographically unexplored period of life between 30 and 40.
Kuba Dąbrowski is well-know for his "transparent photography" and the book itself needed "transparent design". The design includes no typography but handwritten notes by Kuba himself and the only element that was actually designed is the layout of the book and order of photographs and spreads.

I am a Warsaw based graphic designer. The range of my work spans from typography and branding to illustrative work and poster design, but the things I am mostly keen on are editorial and book design. All in all, everybody has his favourites. I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź, Poland and hold a degree in Communication Design. From then on I run my own studio in my hometown Warsaw. Over last few years, I was twice awarded with two Club of Advertisement Creators prizes (KTR) and Project of the Year award (STGU). Moreover, my projects were exhibited on several shows in Tokyo, New York City, London, Berlin, Stockholm, Baku, Havana.
