A little pleasure is an exhibition inspired by the joy of life. In the sheer volume of unpleasant news, pressed daily into our heads by the media, we forget that the purpose of our being on earth is to be happy and to infect this happiness of others.

Andrzej Zygmuntowicz "A little pleasure"
Andrzej Zygmuntowicz

In a world of rush, ruthless competition, flat mass culture, constant lack of time, selfishness and bad emotions, stimulated by modern consumer civilization, we lose what should be the most important – happiness. It doesn't require special outlays or miracles, but you have to think about it a little and want to experience it. Just look close to you - man, space, movement, smell.

Andrzej Zygmuntowicz – a graduate of the Faculty of Precision Mechanics at the Warsaw University of Technology, photographer, member of the Association of Polish Artistic Photographers (president in 1991–94, chairman of the Artistic Council since 2005), president of the Foundation Polish Press Photography Competition (in 1992–2002). Author of photos used in the press, advertising campaigns and book publications, as well as the author of many individual exhibitions and collective participant. He also deals with theoretical reflection on photography and its social and cultural functions.
