FREELANCER is a photographic diptych by Zbigniew Libera, made in the spring of 2013 – it is an allegorical self-portrait of the artist as a social reject. The present publication, inspired by this remarkable work, covers various sides of Libera, one of Poland’s most recognizable artists. His numerous and highly varied portraits are artistic, documentary, journalistic, and political. The body and the image of the artist are combined here with the ambiguous social role he plays. The face of Libera is invariably intriguing: as the physiognomy of a man and a citizen, as a biological mug and the mask of an actor.
