About the artwork
Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski reached world fame in the seventies as one of the founders of monochrome sequences photography (photo series). However, he decided to quit after 15 years because the method did not bring him new insights anymore. Since 2016, however, he took up making new sequences, this time in full color. Not building on his earlier work, but new and refreshing, and making optimal use of existing techniques. And still at some of the same spots in Mexico as forty years ago.
