Artist in Action / Miron ZwonirArtist Talk
Hailed by Terry Southern as the "Poet of Radical Photography" Miron Zownir's photographic work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in several countries from 1981 on. His photos have been published in 6 photobooks and he was featured in many international anthologies. He took up photography in the late 70s during the hey-days of the punk-phenomenon in West- Berlin and London, delivering a tight portrayal of the movement and its peculiar attitude towards life in limbo between a utopian vision of anarchy and nihilistic self-destruction. After 15 years in the States (NYC, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh) he returned to Berlin. In 1995 he went for three month to Moscow to descend into the lower depth of Post-Communist society. From the early 2000’s on Zownir ventured for several photo excursions to Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, California, the Ukraine and Istanbul. He is also a filmmaker and writer of crime novels.
