GALLERY 51


Could you introduce yourself?

In order to sort our doubts out we have this small talk with Roger Szmulewicz, Director of the Gallery as follow:

Please, introduce yourself. ¿How did you get involve with photography? How did you end up specializing in this one area?

Born in 1972, I started photography when I was 16. After my art studies I was working as a photographer. I was always involved with photography. At a certain point I was consulting for buyers. Two years later I had my own space. It was not ment to be that way.

About Fifty One Fine Art Gallery, could you tell us how this idea comes up? What is the main idea of having a project like this one?

As I told previously, it was not meant to be that way. When I opened the gallery I was the only gallery devoted to photography. Photography was (and still is) an unknown field. The idea is, first at all, to try to show quality. Regardless of whether the artist is known or unknown. Don't forget: any famous artist was unknown at some time. I try to make links between 20th century and contemporary photography. I think that everything has a logical progression. So basically most of the artists I show are, from closely or loosely linked to one another through the history of photography. I also try to show different visions, styles and techniques in photography. Photography is a medium that almost everybody is using: in advertising, fashion, art, reportage... Sometimes it becomes confusing for the viewer. I think it’s important to be able to recognize the differences.

What do you like the most about working in this kind of project?

The variety. Every project is different. You are able to meet interesting people.

What do you think, with your experience, that a gallery is looking for in a photographer´s portfolio?

I think we all look for the same: Quality, and hoping that the artist will have a long and interesting career.

Which portfolio (photographer) is the one you like most and why?

I can’t say which one I like most. First at all because we can’t compare photographers. One of the most impressive portfolio that I saw (and that I showed in the meantime in the gallery) is Kerry Skarbakka’s work. It’s was something new very innovative and intelligent work.

How do you feel about contemporary photography? ¿Do you think is there any future for young talents?

Of course. The most important thing is to be selective. There are many photographers out there; you have to pick the best one.

What do you tell aspiring photographers?

Be aware of what you are showing. Edit your work and be patient. Good work is always rewarded

What do you think it is the best way to get involve with contemporary photography?

Look and read a lot. Even things that you don’t like. While looking at shows or reading magazine, try to understand what you see. Try to know why you like it or not.

How do you balance the business side of photography?

It’s not always easy but I can handle I try to be more busy with photography than the business but unfortunately you can ignore the business part.

How do you feel about internet comunication and how do you feel in using it for photographic proposals?

Internet is an excellent tool. Certainly for photography. People can see your inventory online and what they see is what they get. I could not leave without it.

So, what's next for you?

Just follow my road. I hope to be able to make nice shows and meet interesting photographers.

Thanks to Roger for his time and dedication.
