When Witek photographs, he is unintentionally creating images that reference the figure-ground principles of perception. It is the complicated balance, or lack thereof, between subject and background that creates the intrigue of his often mysterious and sensual images. The relationship between object and environment in Witek’s photographs is often complex. “People in Witek’s photographs appear in subtle form. They belong to the whole. They are not a motive in themselves.” – Paulo Roberto, photographer.
