Adam Biernat (1985) is a fine art photographer based in Gdynia, Poland. He studied architecture (Gdansk University of Technology) and history of art (Gdansk University). In his work he focuses on seemingly insignificant, negligible moments/objects/places. He closely observes the mundane. With his camera he always tries to look beyond the surface and beyond the literal, to dig into reality and in a way reveal the hidden. Because of his fascination with faraway places in the north, he has lived for some time in Norwegian Lapland and Iceland.

After the season #1
'After the season', a long-term project in progress, is a result of many walks along the Polish coast. It documents the after-season world of Baltic beaches, when the vibrant summer time is only a distant memory. In this world strange objects/signs emerge sometimes, reminding of human presence, but people themselves rarely pass by. Even if they do, their presence is phantom-like, silent yet intensive.
