Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski was born in 1949 from a Polish father and Dutch/Belgian mother in the small town of Oosterhout, the Netherlands. He studied art and photography at the Academy of Art St. Joost, Breda and the Royal Academy of Art in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, both in the Netherlands. He graduated in 1970 and ever since works as an autonomous artist photographer. In addition to sequences he continues to make other forms of conceptual photography, as well as worldwide photo projects.
Sequences The Sequences are really only about that: confirming an explaining existence in simple terms. They show metaphorically and fundamentally where we are and how we are. There has always been a strong desire to share this process of developing awareness with as many other people a possible.
