Kris Kesiak’s collection of Portraiture is inspired by the lives and the inner humanity of his subjects. Celebrating this, well known singers, musicians, models and bands from across Scotland and beyond all feature in an eclectic presentation of talent and style.
Sottish singers and artists Barbara Dickson, Horse and Rab Noakes appear alongside top model Eunice Olumide and actress Frances Thorburn as well as Jill Jackson, Seafret, Christine Bovill, Roseanne Reid, Tristan Cameron-Harper and many others. “People” is curated by Claire Stewart, photographer and lecturer at City of Glasgow College.
Kris is a master of his craft. Born in Poland, he came to Scotland to study and fell in love with Glasgow and its vibrant culture and arts scene. In his own words, he is: “Polish by birth - Glaswegian by choice”. By the age of eleven he was taking photographs and over the years he has become one of the most sought-after photographers in Scotland, with his work appearing in numerous newspapers and magazines.
Music has always been - not just an interest for Kris, but a real passion - and much of his photographic work can be seen on promotional film and on album covers.
Kris’s work is immediately identifiable. It carries a distinctive style that captures the unique essence of each individual artist or study.
