Witold Krymarys (b. 1948) has been active in the artistic field since 1972. In the 1980s he took interest in structural video and started to penetrate fields bordering on photography and video. He created the series "Fotomocje" ("Photomotions"). These were blurred photos taken at lower shutter speed, which deprived the image from the resemblance to reality up to the point of being illegible. As the author claims, that point or border was crucial to him. The photographic series found its conclusion at the exhibition "E-MOTION" at the Gallery of Lódz Photographic Association in 1978, and inspired the following video works. By the 1990s, Krymarys recorded a couple of dozens of short films, often documentaries based on the themes from local artistic life.
