“Dead Class” was a theatre performance directed by Tadeusz Kantor and the photograph is a tribute to this outstanding Polish artist.
Rafal is a self-taught photographer working in Poland. Though he never had any teachers, he does find inspiration in avant-garde filmmakers David Lynch and Jim Jarmusch. There is an eerie, surrealist quality in Rafal’s artwork that speaks to these influences. He is not shy to admit that he dislikes anything contrived or “glittery” when it comes to photography. “I despise studio photographs, which I tend to associate with product photography or fashion photography,” he says. Rafal instead strives to shoot images that isolate specific human emotions, such as solitude and fear.
