Darek Fortas Winner: Camera Clara Prize 2014

08 January 2015
Irish photographer Darek Fortas has a body of work which has received great acclaim in addition to a number of industry prizes and shortlist credits.  Recently he was announced as the winner of the Prix de la Photo Camera Clara 2014 for ‘Changing Rooms’, his project undertaken between 2011 and 2013 which focuses on miners’ changing rooms in Upper Silesia, Poland and aims to draw attention to the cultural and socio-political dimension of industrial architecture.

Additionally ‘At Source’ was shortlisted for the MAC International 2014, the first open arts prize offering professional artists worldwide the opportunity to exhibit in the MAC, Belfast’s newest arts venue. ‘At Source’, a more recent project, forms part of the artist's ongoing investigation into the political history of Poland, in which Fortas searched for signs of communist resistance that led up to large-scale demonstrations, such of those that occurred at the Jastrzebie Zdroj coal mine during the summer of 1980. Fortas has a style consisting of a combination of documentary-style fieldwork and constructed studio practice, working in a way to draw out connections between his images.

Metro was delighted to produce four large format C Type matt prints with bespoke wooden box frames from Darek’s ‘At Source’ project which is currently showing at the MAC International 2014 exhibition.  The Camera Clara Prize is also showing Darek’s winning image from ‘Changing Rooms’ in Paris this month.
