Born in 1950, Poland, Andrzej Pluta has been producing beautiful images for over 30 years. As a young man he attended art photography school and fled the political situation in his home country in 1970. He first traveled to Rome and then later to Canada, moving from Toronto to Montreal and Vancouver undertaking personality and editorial fashion photography. In 1980, he moved to Los Angeles where he worked in the music and fashion industries.
Andrzej Pluta creates his images using analog photographic gear (Sinar 8×10 view camera) captured on Fujichrome film using traditional lighting methods. Pluta does not alter his images in the darkroom or by computer manipulation, nor retouching of the original color transparency. He has developed his own unique style through experimentation. Each series of work produced brings about imaginative abstractions and varied color palettes.
His photographic works are in numerous public and private collections, notably in the collection of Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal of Saudi Arabia. He has exhibited internationally including; Stara Gallery, (Warsaw), JCJ Haans, (Antwerp), European Parliament, (Brussels), Museum of Man, (Sofia) and in major metropolitan cities across the US and Canada, with over 20 solo exhibitions in New York since 1990.
