Bownik – graduate in philosophy from the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin and in photography from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań. His practice, primarily photographic, concentrates on the intersection of technology and culture, daily life, myths of the future, and on cultural changes influenced by new technologies. Bownik relies on laborious and demanding photographic techniques. He takes interest in both the anthropological study of the object and in the semantics of the image, as well as references to the experience of historical photography.
