Les Opiola

Les (Leszek) Opiola is a photographer based in New York and this city remains his main object of interest. Before emigrating to Canada in the 1980’s he was active first as a musician and then as a band manger in the then emerging Polish rock scene. 

In the 90’s he documented the lives and traditions of the Sioux in South Dakota that culminated in an exhibition in The State Ethnographical Museum in Warsaw, Poland.  For the past few years, he has been photographing blues musicians and other artists influenced by them. He also directs and produces videos for up and coming bands. His work is on permanent display at BB King’s Club in New York and Chess Records Museum in Chicago.

The photographs in the exhibition were all taken in New York and have been selected and exhibited by Wojtek Bozyk.
