Jan Cylwik shines a light on cultural ghosts. He developed a unique process to photograph figures on antique coins which circulated in 100's of millions and have become embedded in our imaginations. Such figures evoke not only feelings of nostalgia and nationalism but also define our identity and direct political action.
He was awarded an MA in Photographic Art with distinction from University of Westminster in 2017. He also holds an MSc. in Electron Microscopy from University of London.
Jan Cylwik returned to photography after a corporate IT career in the City of London.
