About Us

Founder

Maciej Markowicz color negatives

In 2017/18 Maciej traveled 3000 km across Europe inside self-build floating camera as an ambassador of Triennial of Photography Hamburg and the 2Boats/Übermut Project supported by German Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He cruised through Europe, participating in major art/ cultural events. Throughout a yearlong journey he interacted with many people of different ages and different backgrounds. The immersive experience of being inside the camera unites people. Everyone is equal in that very moment. Strangers become friends and naturally get engaged in the most genuine open-minded conversations. This experience ignited Maciej’s need to open a nonprofit organization to promote the use of art and photography for positive social change.

Maciej Markowicz is a photographer living and working in Berlin, Germany. Having a long-term passion for the medium and its materials, Maciej is best known for making mobilized Camera Obscura mechanisms, which he inhabits to explore the limits of photographic expression. Practically living inside a giant moving camera, he exposes images directly onto large-scale sheets of color photographic paper, creating Motiongraphs— unique direct negative photographs—without use of film or digital technology.

Though working with Camera Obscura, an antiquarian photographic device, for more than a decade now, I have only recently discovered its incredible power to unite people
