In “A Short History of Photography” Walter Ben­jamin remar­ked: “Not for nothing have Atget’s photographs been likened to the scene of a crime. But is not every square inch of our cities the scene of a crime? Every passer-​by a cul­prit? Is it not the task of the photographer to reveal guilt and to point out the guilty in his pictures?”

 

Let this motto serve as an invitation to a special auc­tion held together by Raster Foun­dation and Jerzy Lewczyński Institute, organized to help sup­port Lewczyński’s archive and Raster’s publishing activity. It will be a one-​time oppor­tunity to pur­chase rare works, last copies or unique photographs by many critically acc­laimed photographers and artists such as Michał Diament, Nicolas Grospierre, Aneta Grzeszykow­ska, Jerzy Lewczyński, Zbigniew Libera, Władysław Pawelec, Marek Piasecki. A special selec­tion of works by talen­ted photographers of the youn­ger generation will also be available.
