Edgar Leciejewski
 
Edgar Leciejewski (born 1977 in Berlin, lives and works in Leipzig) explores the various social and scientific uses of photography, employing an experimental, analytic approach to the medium by using various techniques and media. His work investigates such issues as the rhetoric of the photographic series, genre, composition, and the question of how much time can fit within a single photographic image. Leciejewski's photographs are repositories of time that allow for a slowing down of the act of seeing. His work has been presented at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Kunsthalle Wien, and Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig, among others.
