Tomek Sikora, ‘Morocco’, 2006, Ney Gallery & Prints

Tomek Sikora was born in 1948 in Warsaw, Poland, of a painter mother and a sculptor father. He took seriously to photography. In 1979 he realised two big projects: „Album” and „Alice in Wonderland”. In 1980 they were presented at the Biennale de Jeunesse in Paris at The Museum of Modern Art in the Pompidou Centre.
In 1982 he migrates to Australia and conducts workshops in photography at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne. Then he establishes a studio of advertising photography there and continues his activity in the area of art photography. He currently lives back in Warsaw.He regularly publishes limited editions of his author’s books 75 and continues to exhibit extensively all over the world. Since 1999 he has been working on his project Transparency of Things which has been exhibited ten times and is continuously enriched with new works. The very first exhibition of this project took place at the Centre of Contemporary Arts in Warsaw. In 2001, together with Andrzej Świetlik, Tomek Sikora created Homeless Gallery which promotes independent photography in many countries.
His latest projects are the albums “Four Seasons”, “A Century Passed”, “Istanbul – Street Photography” “ Sao Paulo - Street photography”, short films about street life and „Tribute to Colors”.
