Bogdan Frymorgen is a photographer, journalist, radio reporter and producer and art curator. He studied English literature at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. In 1986, he moved to the UK and is currently living in London with his wife and two sons. Frymorgen had a classical music show on the Polish Section BBC World Service. Since 1998, a London correspondent of RMF FM, the Kraków-based radio station. He has ties with several cultural institutions active in Kazimierz, the Krakow's the old Jewish quarter, as well as with the Association of Polish Art Photographers and Polish Journalists Association. Bogdan Frymorgen has published a photo album "Kazimierz bez slów" and had his art exhibited in Krakow, Lublin, Bielsko-Biala and Lanckorona.
''...Bruno Schulz, the incomparable Polish writer, comes closest to Frymorgen's vision. Schulz, a Jewish author of only two short but brilliant novellas, was killed by the SS in Drogobych (now a part of Ukraine), on November 19, 1942, otherwise known as Black Thursday. Of his two books, his semi-autobiographical The Street of Crocodiles (1934) is widely acknowledged as one of Poland's greatest literary achievements. Though originally published as Cinnamon Shops, the narrator of this story recounts the dank, dirty, and woefully uneventful commercial avenues of his youth. The setting is one of simple yet elegant contrasts, the way most children actually see the world: on one side, we have the streets of progress and their industrial monstrosities; on the other side, we have the wishful spectacle of candy stores and the sweetness of safety. But as the boy makes his way to the cinnamon shops, a danger looms near. A comet approaches. And when it hits, there'll be no survivors.'' - Steven Brown in the foreword.
Chief Editor and special advisor for VEVAIS-WERKDRUCK (photography) is the renowned photographer Jock Sturges.
Project editors include acclaimed poet and photo historian, Prof. John Wood, poet and photography critic, Steven Brown, and Alexander Scholz.
VEVAIS-WERKDRUCK books consist of twenty images which highlight astonishing work from both new and renowned painters, photographers, and graphic designers. Each hardcover book (approx. 30 x 43 cm) is bound by hand with Japanese binding, signed and numbered by the artist, and published in an edition of 300 copies.
Because of the sophisticated printing methods involved, each print is unique, an original. Scholz uses the world's best reproduction/photographic printing techniques. Digital files undergo traditional darkroom chemistries and develop on paper with red, green, and blue light (C-Prints). Some will be printed as pigment print or as UV print. Black and White pictures will be also presented on Baryta paper. Before binding, in some books the prints are mounted fully on special boards. For pigment prints, Scholz works with Hahnemühle paper and for UV-prints (digital screen printing), Scheufelen paper. Some books will be printed with a special digital color technology on Munken, a Swedish paper.
Scholz works with the printers Ralf Lenk / Scancolor and Max van Pham / Fine Art Factory—dedicated artisans who always find innovate ways to produce perfect pictures. Given the unparalleled production and specialization involved, Edition GALERIE VEVAIS guarantees the quality of these prints for up to 100 years.
For collectors of this stunning series WERKDRUCK, edition GALERIE VEVAIS offers an exclusive display of acrylic glass which doubles as a minimalistic sculpture for private living rooms, galleries, and libraries. The basic model for this acrylic stand holds four VEVAIS-Werdruck books. But for those who need more space, the basic model can be extended in two ways. By standing the sculpture in one line or by facing the corners inward, you can add four more books to your collection for a total of eight. The second model can be extended to a more dimensional sculpture of unlimited capacity.
The first thirty copies will sell for approx. 560 Euros, after which the price will increase.
The books are now being made available as inexpensive booklets, so that art lovers have the opportunity to collect all Werkdruck books for a reasonable price.
