Leszek Gorski has been taking photographs for over 30 years. What concerns him the most in his works is architecture and human presence in urban settings. He prefers to keep his distance to the surrounding environment which he observes with a keen yet sympathetic eye. Leszek wants his photographs to be a source of positive emotions. His works have been shown on five individual exhibitions as well as on numerous group exhibitions in Poland and abroad. Oftentimes, his photographs have received awards and special mentions in photography competitions. Leszek is a member of the Association of Polish Art Photographers [ZPAF].

Entry description: The photograph was taken in a toilet of the Fair in Cologne / Germany. The toilet is usually full of users but at the end of the day and completely empty it seemed to be a very surreal place. This view is a symbol of the modern world where ergonomics and utility are the most important and sometimes produce unexpected effects.
