Come be the first to see Zun Lee and Michał Cała's exhibitions. “My own journey of identity formation and cultural belonging formed the motivation for this visual exploration of fatherhood. I used my lived experience of being nurtured by African American families and father figures since my early childhood while dealing with my personal history of paternal abandonment. This helped me build a specific visual vocabulary that guided me through this work.” In Father Figure, Zun Lee offers an intimate view of the daily lives of Black fathers with whom he has worked closely since 2011—men from the Bronx, Harlem, and Washington Heights in New York who are often parenting within difficult economic and personal circumstances. Through his touching and honest black-and-white portraits, Lee invites us to see these men as dedicated parents who challenge stereotypes of Black masculinity and absent fathers. From 1975-1992, Michał Cała photographed the Silesia region in his home country of Poland. In the 1970s and early 1980s the area was at its peak of industrial development and mining activity, providing mass employment at the expense of the environment and public health. Cala remembers his first impression of Silesia as “terrifying and beautiful at the same time,” leading him to focus his camera on the natural and altered landscape as well as its inhabitants. Although the mines, factories, laborers’ housing districts, and slag heaps no longer exist, the artist’s gelatin silver prints serve as as an unsettling yet intriguing visual record of this recent period in Polish history.

Although the mines, factories, laborers’ housing districts, and slag heaps no longer exist, the artist’s gelatin silver prints serve as as an unsettling yet intriguing visual record of this recent period in Polish history. Michał Cała was born in Toruń, Poland in 1948 and studied aircraft construction at the University of Technology in Warsaw in the early 1970s. From 1974 to 1983 he worked as an engineer in various companies in Silesia and began photographing in the area. In 1977 he moved to Tychy in Upper Silesia, where he co-founded the photographers’ association KRON and became a member of the ZPAF, the Union of Polish Art Photographers. In 2007 he was named one of most important Polish photographers in the last century and participated in the group exhibition Polish Photography in the 20th Century shown in Warsaw and in Vilnius, Lithuania. Cala's work is in several museum collections, including in the Silesian Museum of Katowice, the Silesian Library in Katowice, the Upper Silesian Museum in Bytom, the Coal Mining Museum in Zabrze, and in the local government building in Duisburg in the Ruhr, Germany, and various private collections. Publications on his work include The Anthology of Polish Photography 1839–1989, The Masters of Polish Landscape, and Polish Photography in the 20th Century. Cala now lives in Bielsko-Biała in Poland and is represented by MMX Gallery in London.

Dr. Zun Lee is a Canadian visual artist, physician, and educator whose work encourages alternate ways of thinking about community and belonging. He was born and raised in Germany and has also lived in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Chicago. Intersubjectivity and trust dynamics are an important component of Lee’s work as he embeds himself in his subjects’ daily lives to uncover stories of identity and connection. Lee has exhibited solo shows at Duke University, the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts + Culture and BAND Gallery in Toronto, Jefferson School of African American Heritage Center in Charlottesville, VA, and Galerie Jed Voras in Paris. Selected honors and awards include: Art Gallery of Ontario Artist-in-Residence (2017), Magnum Foundation Fellow (2015), Photo District News Photo Annual Winner (2015), Paris Photo/Aperture Photobook Awards Shortlist (2014), and Photo District News’ 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch (2014).
